Memories

I was so sorry to hear about Uncle Norm's passing. I have so many wonderful memories of summer visits at the farm. I will remember Uncle Norm for his smile, his patience in having us "city girls" under foot, squirting milk at the barn cats, and being such a hard working man. You are all in my thoughts and prayers as you go through this time of sorrow. I am glad you have each other close to lean on. Love Diane

Marlys and family. Norm is now with his Holy Father, whom he served without fail for many, many years. I remember, growing up at Peace, he was a fixture in the church. God be with you all as you mourn your loss, but also celebrate his wonderful life. In His name, Todd Voge
