To Bev and family...Norm was such good man and a joy to be around. I always looked forward to seeing him at the blood bank meetings. He was usually top of my list in who I sought out first. My deepest sympathies to you all.

I am so sorry to hear of Norm's passing. I always enjoyed our times together, both in meetings and on the golf course, even when the golf cart went off without us! My best you Bev and your family.
