    My condolences to the family.
    I am sorry that we never got to meet as circumstances did not permit it but I am happy knowing that we are connected despite the un acknowledgment. It’s ok.
    I am happy to have found you and my half sisters through ancestry and to have found out what my Caucasian extraction is.
    Rest In Peace and may we meet in the beyond one day.

    I was privileged to work with Norm for meany years at Sperry/Honeywell Flight Systems. He was most highly regarded by all who new him. A great work ethic, attention to detail, pleasant personality, always going beyond to make things work well, are only a few of his good qualities. Norm, you are missed. May your reward in heaven be great. Your friend, F. Dale Cooper
