We are thankfully able to watch and listen to the funeral live on our
computer from Minnesota. We would be with you Sue if
it were not for illness and COLD weather driving conditions. We will
miss Norman so much and have such fond memories of past times,
in Denison and also Lake Panora. And in times growing up, annual
vacations to Denison, visiting Grandma and Grandpa as kids, when
we would hang out in their yard of the LaFonda Court, playing yard
games until dark while G & G and Marj and Roy waited to be able to post the
NO VACANCY sign! Norman was a gentle, kind kid even way back
then, except when it came to a serious game of Star Lite Star Bright
and he wanted to be the scary ghost who chased everybody around
in the dark! Fun to reminisce, life goes too quickly. But Norman
enjoyed life and loved his neighbors and family, and loved Jesus and
he is with Him today. Love to you Sue and family. Corrine and Jim

Dearest Sue, Jeff, Ryan and families: aside from family ties, we've known you for decades. Not in a formal card club, but whenever our schedules would mesh there was always a Canasta game in the works! Once a month, back in the 70s, 80s, and 90s, we always looked forward to an evening of great food, laughs and card fun. "Mr. Bates" was quite the sly one when it came to cards! And the 1970s Saturday Night Live skits we'd all imitate (think Todd & Lisa, "that's a stunning housecoat, Mrs. Loopner.") Jeff and Elliott's friendship grew out of those days, and we had joyful moments cheering them on at high school cross country meets.

You and Norm were loving caregivers to so many, Sue. Now it's our turn to help you out when you need something. God's blessings and comfort to all of you!
