Good bye can be so hard. But we do know that we will be together again. Knowing you and your family for 40 some years Norm was a man of his word, a man who loved his family. He will fovever stay in my memories for birthday parties at my house, where his fast action kept my Kristin from serious injury. Thanks Norman.
My families love to Sally and all the Niemets

Sally, I was so happy to see how blessed you are with such wonderful family and friends. Norman will be greatly missed
by all, but he sure left a great legacy in those beautiful books that he put together during his illness. They surely recall all of your great memories of his life.
The funeral was spectacular. We all enjoyed hearing from so many of your family regarding life with Norman. Rich Chestnut gave us many scriptures that were so meaningful, and the songs were beautiful. It was a true blessing. Love you sis. Ce Ce and Bob
