From: Brian Parnell and Mayla Oud
Relation: He was our buddy

Norman,you will be missed. Those convertible rides during the summer with you, Mayla and myself were some of the highlights of our lives. We loved your Navy and Great Depression stories. We also loved how everyone who came down the road in short order would be bestowed with a colorful nickname. Our trip to the Kinsol trestle will always be a favored memory. The smile that came over your face whenever you saw Mayla will be forever remembered. You were loved. Have a safe journey my friend. Brian. Mayla and Joker
