I highly respected Norm & admired his loving commitment to our Lord & others. He was a caring man. I'm lifting Esther & the rest of his loving family in prayer to the throne of grace asking for the peace & comfort for them that only our precious Savior by His Holy Spirit can provide. I regret that I cannot make the trip from NM to honor Norm & hug the family at his service on Monday.
