  1. I’ve got many fond memories of talking to Mr Norris out at the plant farm. I don’t think there was a single political issue or world problem that the two of us didn’t come to a perfect solution for while talking in one of the greenhouses. After I got married and bought a house, Mr Norris helped guide me in picking the right plants and trees. All three of my daughters have spent many hours climbing in and playing under those very trees. My sincere condolences to the family.
