    I just read about your loss of this wonderful and dedicated gentleman. I have know him for year. I always looked forward to talking with him at Bills Diner. We worked together at HRD. The kindness and sincerity of Norm was beyond reproach. I loved his patriotism and have the article from the Union Sun when he spoke to the students at Lockport. My prayers are with you and my dear friend. I have been blest that our paths crossed.
