I met Norm in the winter of his life; me in my Autumn (although he debated that it was LATE Autumn). Norm was an unexpected surprise in my life. He made me laugh every day, dried a billion of my tears, protected me, respected me… loved me.
Norm was opinionated and poetic; out-spoken in local politics and soft-spoken to those he loved. His wit and IQ were amazing and he challenged my mind to prepare me to be a stronger woman.
Norm peacefully took his last breath while surrounded by family on Sunday, March 5, 2017.
I will miss his laugh, his smile, his warm hugs and sweet kisses. I will miss him all the days of my life and be grateful for the time he shared with me and my family. I know I will see you again, my precious Norm. Until then, my family and I will hold you in our hearts and recall the memories, wisdom and adventure you gifted us.
