Bill and I were best friends in Newport as we went through junior and senior high school. We did many fun things together, things that I will never forget and will cherish forever - swimming, hunting, fishing, listening to music, hanging out and cruising, etc...around in Bill's Jeep. We were neighbors, living on the same street - grew up together. One summer I went with Bill to his church camp for a week - great spiritual experience. Bill was a true, trustworth and loyal friend. I think of Bill and all the experiences and things we did quite often. Love you Bill. Jim ("Hin-Du")

Barbara & family, I was so sorry to hear about Bill when Bob Starr notified me on Saturday. I knew this would eventually happen to such a kind, gentle man, but its still devastating to hear when the news comes. I wish I could be there this morning but I have pressing duties at work that prevents me leaving. Our thoughts and prayers are with you on this sad occasion. With kindest regards, Doug & Crystal

Mr. Norman always loved to have a project going - repairing this or improving that.

May his spirit continue
