Thanks for all the laughs & jokes! You were a great story & joke teller. In fact, the best! You have left an unforgettable impression on me, I miss you.
Dear Grandpa, not only were you my wonderful Grandfather, you were also my friend. I will miss our talks, and mostly our laughs. You taught me how to be strong and caring, always keeping a sense of humor about things. To me, your on a last road trip, and I will see you when I get there. Dont worry about paging me...im right here.
My thoughts and prayers go out to you all.
Every time Norm would see me, he woud love to sit and chat about all the places I had traveled to and my job, he would get such a charge out of it.
He is truly a wonderful man, he had such a loving and caring side about him and just loved life in general.
I am sad that I will not be able to say goodbye to him as I am traveling now, and do not know when I will be back, but know that my thoughts will be with you all during this difficult time.
Your Mom was there at heavens doors to welcome him in with open arms, and know that you have 2 guardian angels watching over you.
We will always remember Big Grandpa! He always put a smile on our face and made us feel welcomed! My prayers and sincerest condolences go out to all of the family!
