I can not tell you how your father has made an impact on my life through his work. I am so blessed that I had a chance to know your father. He was a wondering man to talk to.
I am so sorry for your loss, my prayers are with you at this time. As I am unable to attend your celebration of life, please except this poem as my words on that day.
Don’t think of you dad as gone away
His journey’s just begun.
Life holds so many facets
This earth is only one.
Just think of your dad as resting
From the sorrows and the tears,
In a place of warmth and comfort
Where there are no days or years.
Think of how he must be wishing
That we could know today,
How nothing about our sadness,
Can really pass away.
And think of him as living
In the heart of those he touched,
For nothing loved is ever lost
And your dad was loved so much.
Norm you will be missed!
Norm was one of the most engaging, intelligent, fun-loving, compassionate human beings I have ever known. It is truly sad not to have him here with us anymore but for those of us who were fortunate enough to have him enter our lives, we have certainly had our lives enriched! You will be missed Norm and at the same time I have a little smirk remembering all of the chats and laughs we had together.
My deepest condolences to Norm's family and friends. I got to know Norm well over the 3+ years I saw him for regular treatments. He was a true healer, in every sense. It is because of him that I recovered completely, not only due to his impeccable care as a physiotherapist, but also because of his deep compassion and enlightened philosophies on trauma, life, and recovery. I was also lucky to have gotten to know him and his awesome sense of humor, unwavering positive outlook on life, and the deep love and pride he had for his family. Rest in peace with your dear Heidi, Norm. The world is a better place for having had you in it. I will never forget the gift you've given me.
My sincere condolences to you Misa, and all of your family. You are young to have lost both of your parents, but I know you will still be surrounded by love. It was evident how much your Dad loved you and your children. Every day you had with him was a gift.
Rest In Peace pal
We had a lot of fun growing up
Hope we meet again
