It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you. Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad. Love, The Gillilands

He was my friend and motorcycle riding buddy. Enough said.
Norm was a true artist and visionary. He was a gentleman and great mentor, and I always enjoyed his insight and the direction he gave me. He will be sorely missed and a great loss to our profession. Our prayers are with his family and loved ones at this time.
Dear Norm’s family,
It was joy to us meeting Norm through our Appaloosa horses. We still have 2 offspring from his World Ch. Stallion, Mr. Mystique. We have stayed good friends for over 25 years through cards, letters and e-mail. But also enjoyed his personal company on several occasions. In Hailey, Idaho and in Washington getting to meet his 2 of his grandsons and their mother. We are so sad to lose our friend. Loved him dearly.
Norm was my mentor at lamberts and Garden Design always encouraging, creative.
Nearly scared me to death going thru a toll both in his corvette.
I’m sure you guys miss him.
God bless you very much!
