To Anne, Kaye, Steve and all of the family, I remember well those days at the lake and the skiing and games. Norris was like another Uncle. My Mother will be sad to hear the news of Norris passing. It will bring many good memories of a good friend.
Norris was always so good to look in on Our Grandmother at Scott Lake as well.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

I miss him already. Norris was a wonderful neighbor to my parents and family at the lake. My father died Oct 10th and Norris Nov 3rd. By the mercy of God and the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, I trust that they are now together in heaven. May God comfort you as you grieve your loss.
