Donna and Gwynne, so sad to learn of Norman's passing, but I'm sure he's in the loving arms of Jesus now. As has been said many times, 'tis a far better place. Norman was a blessing to many and I always thought of him as a solid, solid guy who wasn't afraid to express his love of our Lord. May God grant you the peace and comfort you need just now.

Donna, Gwynne, and family, You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. I know Norman was sad to leave you, but is rejoicing to be with Richard and other family members and our Lord. I will never forget Norman and his patience each Sunday when he would spend the entire Sunday School hour walking my Matthew in a stroller, out in the church parking lot, to keep him happy when he was a baby. He was a very special man, with a kind heart. Sylvia McCrory
