From: Electra Whitehead
Relation: Family Friend

Some of my earliest memories are of Mandy & I drawing happy faces on the toes that were visible through the holes in your socks. I always have the warmest memories of visiting your house in Dawson Creek, you always made me feel at home.

In my life, there will never be another ‘Butterball’ (I still can’t believe that I came up with that!) I will always remember your distinct voice and warm heart.

Rest in Peace, Big Norman.
