  1. So sorry to read about Norm’s passing. My dad was Arvid Tumm, and my Grandma was Marie’s sister Tracy, who was married to Rob Tumm. My dad passed away a few years ago now, but I know he always felt close to Marie’s family. You
    have our sincere sympathy. God bless you all.

  2. So very sorry to hear of Norm’s passing. He was such a good man. I’m sure that he, Dad (Larry Provo), Kenny Ford & Breezy Bresina are now enjoying a either a fishing trip or a bull session. You are in our thoughts & prayers.
