First, I open with this caveat, I am a horrible friend. I can not believe I just learned of this tragedy. It is most certainly a tragedy loosing such a good person. When I served with him in the United States Marine Corps between 1985-1989, we, his friends, called him Stormin' Norman. He was larger than life, a huge guy who managed a great smile. I am saddened I lost touch with my Marine Corps brothers, and saddened even more that Norman is no longer with. God Bless you and yours, brother. Rest in peace. A co. 1/8 always.
