I have known Norman as Mr., Norman Uncle Norman and last but not least my brother-in-law, My memories as brother-in-law were the most treasured because he was not only kind to my sister but also to my brother after Katrina. He would do anything to make us feel safe and secure. The last request was for me to take care of his little man , Chevy(his and Bev’s puppy). In honor, I will take care of him just as he taken care of us.

May you rest in peace now, Mr. Norman. I thank you for being such a warm and loving grandpa to Josh, Katie and Jordan as they were growing up, and for always being a perfect southern gentleman to me. You had such loving and caring gentle ways that made all feel so loved and welcomed, and the love you had for Bev could never go unnoticed, as you shined around her. May your light now shine down on everyone. ❤️
