  1. Our loss is Heaven’s gain. The love between Norm and Dee is an example of what devotion is all about. We will miss Norm sitting next to Fred at the Nickle Plate, somehow the seat he has now is so much better!

  2. Your Dad was a great guy. I knew him most of my life. We played football on the Mt. Lebanon Wildcats.
    He introduced me to my wife at Moore Park Pool. He visited us at our Brooklyn.N.Y. apt. when I was in the Air Force & he was in Philadelphia. We grew up at the Moore Playground playing softball, swimming, went to movies
    all over the Pgh. area, I spent great times at the Nedde home. He & Fred loved to attend the Brookline Picnics

    So ,sorry for your loss !
