Norm and Lorrie. I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your dad. He was a great man and certainly a great role model for you. He was a long time neighbor and was always very good to my mom and dad. I don't know if you recall but I used to babysit you many many moons ago. You now have one more angel watching out for you. God Bless you and your family.

Norm and Laurie, I am truly sorry to hear of Norm Sr's., passing. Liberty Street will never be the same. Your dad will be missed. After moving away from the area I was always thankful for having your dad so close and to your family's long history with the ambulance and fire departments and willingness to risk your own safety for the lives and safety of others.
