Such a nice and wonderful man to be with, thanks for the special things you do to me
I met uncle Norm thru my sister in law (Ate Lani) when they visited us in Oak Harbor, WA in summer of 2011.
Ever since we moved back to California, I stayed in touch with Auntie Zeny and Uncle Norm. I remember him calling me “maganda” lol! whenever I call them on special occasions and holidays.
He will be dearly missed. He was such a kind and warm hearted person.
Our deepest sympathy to Auntie Zeny and family.
