Not sure what to say?

Dear Ava, Jeannie, Walter and Pat, Max and I were so sorry to hear of Mike's passing. He held a special place in our hearts. Some of my best school memories include "Mr. Norris."
We pray you find peace in knowing he is in a better place then any of us could imagine.
Prayers for you all.

Best friend/brother anyone could ever have. Peaceful, caring, non judgemental, loved everyone he met and very funny as well. Could cook a heck of a brisket.
Will miss our biweekly conversations. Peace my brother good times were had and remembered.

Im so sorry for your loss. I worked for 4 years with Mike in the 90s at Jones. He of course taught music and I taught art in an old portable building. I enjoyed our daily conversations and his clever wit. He enlightened me about horse racing and classical music. He was always so very helpful, assisting me with art shows and UIL competitions. He was such a dependable, amiable person, the best colleague that I ever had the privilege of working with. My sympathies to your family.

Simply honored to have had Mr. Norris as a teacher, mentor and friend for life. Prayers for the Family and all the lives he has touched!

So sorry for your loss. I was a student of his, he was a great teacher and made Band enjoyable. Prayers for all.

So sorry for your loss. He was an excellent teacher and a kind soul

Had the honor of being his band student. Memories of a loving and kind man. May he rest in peace. May God surround his family and friends and bring them comfort.
