Mary Jo and family

So sorry for your loss. I remember lots of laughs and good times with Norm and you at the Goodrich gatherings through the years. Larry was very fond of him as well. Prayers for your family at this time of loss.

Dear Mary Jo, Our sympathy on your loss of such a wonderful man ~ Norm always had a smile and a hug, no matter how many years it had been since we last saw each other. I'm smiling through tears remembering those times...

Mary Jo,
What a extraordinary man Norm was. What a treasure for Joshua, Jesse, Cassy and Melanie to call him "Gramps".  A man of true integrity, admired by so many and loved by all.  Our earthly home will miss his presence however the heavens above are celebrating his arrival. An angel amoung us.We will cherish the memories made, the laughter, the jokes and his words of wisdom.  A tear will be shed  but my heart will grow a little knowing that he will always be looking down on his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.  I must say I feel good knowing a great mechanic is in charge! LOVE and GODSPEED
