Uncle Norris was a "special" character in the story of my youth. I will forever remember some of those times. Today, I rejoice in knowing he has received that heavenly promotion. He was the last survivor of my father's generation. I look forward to hearing some heavenly stories one day. May God comfort all of the family at this time but together we all await that glorious resurrection.
