    My mom Shar and I send our deepest condolences to Norm’s family and other grieving friends.
    Mom remembers the good times that all the people from their card party group used to have. Some times it got a little heated when Norm’s wife thought other women were looking at him and she thought all the women wanted him. As a kid, it was entertaining to watch.
    Norm would come to hear my band play at different places but he always came to the Roadrunner when we played there. He would dance with all the women that could keep up with him. He LOVED to dance!
    I hope you’re dancing in Heaven Norm!
