Donna & Harold Boggess, February 4, 2012 Norman was always outside doing something. Hunting, gardening, putting up hay, herding cows, or whatever anyone needed help with. He will be greatly missed. Cheryl (Sheri) Faye White, February 3, 2012 I loved Norman like a Father. He was in the Army with my Daddy Tommy Isbell before I was born. We spent a lot of time with them at their home on Oakwood Drive in Rylie, Texas. I loved sitting in his lap when I was little. He was always gentle and funny. I was a very sad little girl when they moved so far away to West Virginia. I enjoyed their visits and spending time with them. Norman will always be close to my heart and dear to me. He is in Heaven with his son, My Daddy and their mutual longtime friend Bill Oberlachner. I am sure they are up there right now playing dominoes or finding a good spot to camp out and go fishing!
