God bless and keep Norman

No more pain

Good-by my FRIEND Good-by
I just re-read this tread, so sorry to hear of the loss of a fellow rider. I did not know him but from the post I have read, you can tell he was a man that was well thought of by his friends and those who have met and ridden with him. May you rest in peace and I pray for the family in their time of mourning that god will give them peace in their hearts and the strength to carry on.

This is a terrible loss. My condolences go out to his family and friends. I had the pleasure of riding with HT back when the Western Rally was in its infancy. Rest in Peace.

This is sad news, I knew of his struggle, but missed this thread until now. My condolences to his family and good friends. I know he was hoping to ride with his friends again. You'll be there in our hearts Norm. Ride on my will be missed.

A few shots from the Creston Rally. (I didn't have my camera, so they are not my shots. The riding shot I imagine was taken by Alberta Rider. )
