So very, very sad. Uncle Norman was the closest thing to my Dad since he passed when I was five. He loved me and my family, and he sure did love my Aunty June. I will miss him forever. As soon as he'd see me he'd buy me a beer! I remember after visits, Aunty June and Uncle Norman telling me I couldn't go home until I sang that song! I've sang that everytime I've seen them since. Hey look me over Uncle Norman, I love you so much.
