Gone but not forgotten. Your sense of humor, your smile, your gentle and calming spirit will be missed. You lit up a room with your warm and welcoming eyes and that side smile. Ever so forgiving with that gentle, quick chuckle. Always found the best side in every conversation or person. Never had a bad moment or let anything get you down. It was my pleasure getting to know you and June. May you rest in peace, the heavens got a beautiful angel.

My prayers are with you Aunt June. Never knew how much he looked like dad until this picture. A rush of memories flooded me when I saw it. When i met him as a child he didn't have much hair. Now i know all the Norris boys looked alot alike!
