Norm was a really cool guy and someone I could really relate to. We shared similar interests and I really enjoyed the trips we took in his dynamic sketching class, especially the Nethercut where he got us in the private collection tour then our class got a special tour in the restoration area which blew my gear-head mind. Also Planes of Fame, it was great being able to talk to him about the aircraft; something I don't often get to talk about with someone so knowledgeable. Not to mention he helped me improve my drawing.
Goodbye Norm, my life is certainly better for having had the pleasure to be one of your students.
