Condolence & Memory Journal

I knew that one day I would not know about the passing but would like you to know that Norm and my mother shirley j. blades were close for many years. I have a picture of him when he was about 20 in a suite. He was something. My sister Lori Greenawalt in brooklyn, Md. visited quite often. He was a good man and always tried to make you laugh. I hope that he rests in peace. I live in lavergne, tn. Maybe now norman and my momma can finally be together and laugh and play.
