I'll always be grateful for our friendship. We shared many laughs over the years. But what I will always remember is that whenever I needed help he never hesitated. Helped cut the branches of my tree that fell into the road, helped when I locked my keys in the truck, helped, helped, helped. He was always kind, caring, loving and giving. I'll miss his sense of humor most of all. My sincerest condolences to his family, especially my dearest friend, Fuzzy. Prayers and love.

He was a wonderful person. He will be missed always. He was top dog to every dog at the dog park. No one loved every dog as he did and every dog loved him. There will be an emptiness that will never be filled for dog and human friends at the park. So sorry for your loss.

I am very saddened to hear of the loss of Norm.

As a dog park regular, we spent many hours over the years sitting at the picnic table, talking about our beloved fur kids, Sadie's latest antics, and his occasional mishaps.

My dogs Loretta and Tank loved him and he will be very much missed by all of the dog park regulars.

He was such a sweet man!

I know you will take comfort in cherished memories.

Always liked his twinkling eyes and smile! So enjoyed seeing him at his dad's birthday celebration. I'm sure they're together now, perhaps having a brew together.....
