Thinking of you and your family at this time of mourning. Norm was very special and Terry especially remembers the tussling of his hair each time Norm would go by our pew. And of course the times he worked in your home.
Please know we are keeping you in prayer and you are in our thoughts and mind.

Our sympathy to Gladys and the family . I am glad we have been able to meet Norman. He loved his family and will be missed. RIP . Fly high with the angels.
Gail and I share your Mountain Family sadness and recognize and celebrate the wonderful life that Norm lived. Gladys and Norm were a warm, smiling, and loving couple. We are particularly close to Shirley, who loved her father’s compliments and support. She mentioned that her father was a good listener. Eventually in the conversation, Norm would often come up with a witty humorous response together with a nice sparkle in his eye. Gail and I know that Norm is a great example of a ‘life well-lived’!
My condolences to Gladys and all the family. May you find peace in all your wonderful memories together with Norm.
My Deepest Sympathy to all of the family. May all the wonderful & happy memories the family made together comfort you all at this sad time. Al, I enjoyed meeting your Dad at our family get togethers, your Mum always came over & spoke with me. My thoughts are with you.
Dear Gladys , Allan, Shirley and families
