I worked with Norm for many years at Ypsi. He was always helpful and gentlemanly in working through problems. And a joy to talk with. I am sorry for your loss. He was a good man.

So sorry to hear about Norm, Suzy.
As you know we worked together at Ford Ypsilanti and I'm saddened by this news.
But, I'm grateful for the knowledge of Norm's personal commitment to our Lord.
