    Dear Aunt Sara and Family,

    You are in our prayers. We have only fond memories of Uncle Norm. He was certainly someone to admire for many reasons. He was loving, kind, ambitious and hardworking. It is rare to find so many qualities in a person. Uncle Norm had courage to pursue all that interested him. I will always have great admiration of him. May God be close to you now and always.

    Sue Stanko and family

    Mr. J. was one in a million. His curiosity about the world was what I will always remember about him. Between his love of family, friends, country and his faith he lived a very full and generous life. Love to Sara, Phil, Mike, Dan, Andy and their families from Susan (Bender), David and Sadie.

    Sara and family, we are so sorry to hear of Norm’s passing. We served with him in the Army in Korea and always considered him one of the best. We will always remember him as a friend. We remembered him in Korea as ‘Sgt. Ajax’ because his last name was difficult.

    Norm was a gentle, kind, loving man to everyone he came in contact with. Whatever Norm did,he did with ease and perfection and taught other to do the same.

    He taught the young and ‘not so old’ how to be winners in his/her goals and not be afraid to follow the dream.

    May you rest in peace Norm and may the angels ‘fly’ you to your eternal home where Steve awaits your with his open arms and smile.

    Prayers for Sara,Phil,Mike, Dan, Andy and families.
