Diane, children and grand children, I cannot begin to know how you feel I can speak of my feeling of your loss. Your memories of Norris are great, I am sure.
Norris was the kind of person easily missed by all. When you feel the need to talk to him just pick one of your stored up memories and peace will come to you.
God has you always and peace will always be with you.
Loving you like family, Loretta, Melvin and Demetria
