    I offer my sincerest condolences for your loss.
    I had the honor of spending time with Norman during Tony’s retirement and then again before his cruise, he was a friendly and joyful man who loved his family with all his heart and soul. I will continue to pray for your peace during this difficult time.

  17. My prayers for strength from the Lord’s arms in the very sad time.

    Norman was always one to give a smile, and positive messages. Each morning I would see Norman, and he always had a kind greeting, great smile, and kind words. He would share kind advise on how to handle the negatives of life, and always did it with a smile.

    Norman had an impact on my life, on a very sad day, and helped me to turn my sadness around. I hope knowing how much of an impact Norman had on myself, and so many others will bring some comfort, in this very sad time.

    Blessings to your family, and may Norman live in the Lord’s arms in love, and peace.

  18. I know Norm from DSCC. Although we did not work together, his sparkling personality left a big impression. I am so sorry for your loss. I pray that you will find comfort in the Lord and in the great memories you have of Norm…..

    To my beloved Crowder family:
    Uncle Norman is a blessing to all of us. The memories we shared with him shall forever be cherished. He served us all with a Jesus-filled love and showed us the road map of what “family” looks like. Although we will miss him dearly, we shall all rejoice together in celebrating Uncle Norman’s home-going. His spirit is with Jesus now and we shall see him again because of the blood and resurrection power of our Lord and Savior. I love you all so very much and I’m so thankful and honored to live every day with a spirit that has been touched by Uncle Norman.

Leave Your Condolence
