    Norman will be greatly missed. I have kept in touch with him since he left the Forum. We used to chat about movies and TV shows regularly.
He had some great stories.  GBNF.

BMG.        Norman's funeral is tomorrow 6th. November in Derby, England.    Believe a number of Belfast friends from his Facebook "East Belfast Chat" and "The Shipyard" are going over.  Missed by all of us.
