As a young teenager, I received an electric guitar for my birthday. I used to go to Mr. Norris for him to tune it for me. He showed me many times how to tune that guitar and I could never seem to get it right. No matter how many times I went to him, he tuned that guitar and was always so patient. He never made me feel like it was an imposition. Having moved from Pennsylvania, I haven't seen him in many years, but I will always remember him as a kind and quiet soul. Rest in Peace Mr. Norris.

I am so happy my Dad is safely home now with God and his savior Jesus Christ, and the love of his life, his wife Ruby Arlene (Loughry) Norris. He presented God, God's word and salvation to my mom, and to my brother Steven and I, enabling all of our salvations...and enabling us to present the way to salvation to our children and on down the line to next generations. He witnessed God's grace and love, and how to be saved to everyone he ever met who would listen. He and I grew very close over the years since my mom died, and I miss him very much already. His daughter, Vicki. I love you Dad, so much.
