    Hello, my thoughts and prayers are with you all. Uncle Norm has always been a hero to me. As a little kid, Uncle Norm always looked 7 feet high and full of muscles. I use to love when he let me go through his loose coins looking for wheat pennies. May his greatness always be on our minds. Scott Arnold

    Saddened by Norms passing. I started working at NMP in 1957 and Norm was a big help in getting started. Even though I ended up in Syracuse I never forgot the beginning with Norms advice and
    The very best to the entire family.
