September 21, 2021 "Enjoyed it then but even more thankful now say, saw Norm live 3-4 years ago; an old 1000 seater theater & a lovefest it was. Not much new material & everybody knew his old stuff but nobody cared - we were as much paying homage as a ticket price; for us, he was the best. Love ya Norm and peace to his family & friends ..." - Jack Jalove
September 20, 2021 "I loved Norm Macdonald via all of his work very much. Even though he didn’t know me, I felt like I knew him through all of the content I’ve sifted through and streamed over the years. Some of the laughs that were born as a result of almost every joke I heard him tell far surpassed - in sheer power, derivative of raw feeling of what it means to be human and want a good laugh - any other laugh that I experienced hearing jokes told by anyone other than Norm. And even though we didn’t know each other, I felt that in so many instances where f watching him I could still see passed the act to know he was an awesome guy with a good heart. I’d like to think I have one too.. and sometimes I think that self perspective of being good and desire to be good comes from being influenced by good people like Norm Macdonald. I just loved to see that he really brought out the best in practically everyone he interviewed and interacted with publicly in general and to see his wonderful relationships he had with so many others I look up to and live vicariously through all of the very apparent friendships he has with his fellow comics and peers. It’s just such a shame and I know that we all have to die one day but it doesn’t make it any less of a loss for our universe/reality we live in. How proud human kind should be that we KNEW this kind of person, that someone that didn’t even know you and that you didn’t know could make you feel as happy as Norm did for not only me but for so so many!! I am truly blessed to have lived at the same time as Norm Macdonald - thank you for so much more than you know! " - Adam M (Ormond Beach, FL)
September 20, 2021 "I pray that God blesses the Macdonald family and grants them peace and patience to deal with this tremendous loss.

To his fans, Mr. Norm Macdonald was an incredible comfort and joy. He spread an incalculable amount of laughter and happiness throughout the world and will be greatly missed by us all. "
