Robert, Keith & Brenda –
We are so sadden to hear of Norman’s passing. The video slides are a true tribute to his love & dedication to his family and friends. Everyday something I see, hear or remember reminds me of the blessing and honor it was to have grown-up in Camden. The best of those blessings were the people, and Norman was a true Camden Hero. Please accept our prayers during this time!
