I have only known Norris for three years, two of which we worked together. There was not a day that went by that he did not talk about his family, especially you, Dustin. He was so proud of you. He was a fine person and will be missed.
I would like to send my deepest sympathies for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Ruth, Steve, Zach, and Sarah:
We are praying for you folk for GOD to give you comfort and peace during this time. We love you, much and may GOD bless you and your family.
Hey Mr. Gator, It’s really hard for me to write this, but since I still owed you that call back I figured I’d write something on here and just bug ya one more time. This thing won’t hold everything I want to say, so I’ll keep as short as I can.. I was just sitting here thinking about you. How you always helped me anytime I needed it, like that time we had my entire truck interior tore apart in your front yard, or going fishing with you and Daddy when I was little. How you picked on me, randomly calling me saying you “could hear that Chevy rusting from my house!” And asking if me and Jerrah were married yet, and how you were gonna be the minister. Remember when I would call and pick on you when Oklahoma lost, or how you’d pick on me about UGA? I can’t tell you how much I’m gonna miss that.. You were like another Dad to me. It’s gonna be really hard without you. I love you Mr. Gator, and I will always miss you. Until I get to see you again, keep ’em straight up there, and put in a good word for me. See ya man, Love ya. Dusty.
I am sadden about the lose of Norris. He was such a nice and kind man. He will be missed by all. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Norris was a wonderful, precious addition to our family. He gave us guidance, hope and strong words of encouragement. Whenever we needed him he was just a phone call away. We will miss him. We love you guys. Wanda, Craig, Miranda & Madison
Norris was not just a friend, he was a part of my family. I will miss him greatly. He taught me that there truly is good people in the world who do not judge. Norris accepted me and my family no matter what we did, even if he did not agree with it. He left Judgement up to the Lord!! I will miss him dearly!! Norris you will always be loved and thought of!!! I am glad that I got to know a real “Santa”!!
Know that I am praying for you and may God’s comforting holy spirit surround and support you through this time of grief. May God Bless.
