  • Norman was a wonderful brother. We did lots of things together as we grew up. He loved our grandfathers farm. He
    Always wanted a pony. Grandpa‘s workhorse old Bill was one of his favorite animals. Grandpa told him that when Bill Had a foal that he could have it. Of course he never had one .0
    WHen the cows had calves and they were about 6 weeks old Norm thought I should ride one. I trusted his advice and ended up in a feeding trough. There were many more such happenings but I loved him dearly. We shall meet again!!

  • Norman is loved and missed more than words can say.
    Only God can know the very personal sorrow and grief that we must live with after the loss of a loved one. May He bring comfort and peace to the family during this time of loss.
