Dear Carole and Family!

Very Sorry to hear about Norm’s Passing. He will be very missed. We knew Norm on the farm, and it was always great to see him at the Auction Sales, and Flea Markets. He had a great sense of humor, had a real green thumb, a nack for buying and selling, and was great to his Collie Dogs, who always were a pleasure to see!

You are in our thoughts Carole, and Family. I learned a lot from Norm, Take Care and you are fondly remembered and missed.

Bob & Sheila Cuillerier & Robert Jr.

We were so sad to hear of Norm’s passing. Visiting Norm and Scotty and later Hamish, was a rite of passage to the start of the summer and a required stop especially for Bella each time we passed his home on our walks or bike rides. His kindness and generosity with is home grown produce and prolific plants will always be remembered.
Highlands One will not be the same without Norm’s smiling, happy face strolling the beach with his beautiful dogs or working his lovely gardens. Rest In Peace my friend.

Condolence from Sue and John Lewis on May 31st, 2019 8:41 PM

Carol, John and I were so terribly sorry to hear of Norm’s death. It came as a shock to us as we did chat with him not that long ago. Norm was a lovely man and we were privileged to have chatted with him on the beach, which started many years ago with Scotty and our Murphy. I never knew when they would be coming along and Scotty would land on my lap, and scare the daylights out of me. When I turned around, there was Norm giggling.
We are so sorry for your loss and your family. We feel it too.
Best regards,
Sue and John Lewis
