My condolences and deepest sympathy to Norm's family. Norm was a very important person to all of us in the Class of1956 of Greensburg High School. We enjoyed our school years together and the more recent years by his regular attendance at our yearly class reunions and bi-monthly breakfasts. We will miss him, his great smile, and gentle manner. May the peace of God be with all of his family as you celebrate his life, and we all give thanks for our memories. Paul Beal, Class of 1956 Greensburg High School
