We feel blessed to call you, Sandy, and Norm, friends for many years. We have fond memories of our theatre, fine dining experiences as well as informal dinners in our homes. The discussions after a particularly thought provoking play were exhilarating. Norm’s sense of humor and his ability to tell a story come to mind. We considered Norm a role-model and mentor. He had considerable talent in analyzing a situation, and his organizational skills were legendary. He freely shared these talents with us and the many charitable organizations and churches who needed him. He was a role model as a Christian. He loved the Lord and worked tirelessly to share God’s love using every talent and opportunity given to him by his maker. It is helpful to thank the Lord for sending us Norm for a brief time, spared him of prolonged suffering, and now welcomes him to his reward. Heaven is a richer place today. To you Sandy, and Lynn, we extend our deepest sympathy.
