I am so sorry for your loss. I have so many fond memories of Norman at Empire Grove. From our many chats while walking around the circle to singing in the choir under his direction. The Buzzell family are in my prayers

My condolences to Marguerite and family. Norman and my dad Bob Parker worked at Eastern Trust and I remember chatting with Norman on visits to the bank, and visiting Norman and Marguerite at their home when I was a boy. May you all share many happy memories of Norman and your lives together.
