Dear Sean & Dianne,

I was so saddened by your loss. Norm was such a good friend to me over the years. It was always strange that if I was in a down mood, suddenly Norm would appear and make life feel alright. What a beautiful soul. Keep his spirit inside you. It is very special! My condolences to you both and I feel so sorry that I have lost a good friend.

Janice Sarell.

Norm was one of a kind. Always had great stories and would always put a smile on everyone’s face. Rest in peace. Love, The Jans.

Relation: Friend/work

So saddened to hear of Norm’s passing. He made a real impression on me years ago when I worked at the Southwinds Motel. He was the first person to welcome me to my new job and always greeted me with a smile from ear to ear. He always made me laugh and was so fun to be around. Our loss is certainly heaven’s gain. Rest peacefully, my friend.

Norm always made us smile when he would come into the store, he was always cheerful, & he was a heck of a poker player! He will be missed, condolences to the family.

From: Heather Baker
Relation: Friend/ co worker/ employee

I am so sorry to hear of Norm’s passing! I worked with him in Greenwood, and for him when he owned his restaurant and enjoyed every minute. He was the sort of man who lifted people up just by his company. He was a very special person and will be dearly missed.
