I met Norman once at a Mother’s Day cookout at my sister Christal’s house a few years ago. I viewed the tribute video just now. It looked to me that Norman had a nice life and loved his family. My heart goes out to his family especially to Mike and Christal. Please know that you are in our thoughts in this time of sadness. We will make a donation to the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue Mission down here in Palm Beach, FL. Our thoughts and prayers are with you! Love, Scarlet, Steve and Jessica
