My charming, fun loving brother is gone. Peace, brother.

Peace, my friend
....I will ALWAYS cherish the times that we spent together... especially as children. You me and "Mervin". Playing Jeremiah Johnson on the back forty at 25 Mile Rd. Our tresure chest hunts,Crawfishing in the river, froging in the swamp,camping out, making snow forts, riding the bus together to school, you protecting me from bullies,staying up late on Saturday nights to watch "The Ghoul" ,listening to Cheech N' Chong and the "Chicken Heart" and then taping our own fictitious commercials on cassettes, the Holloween funhouse's you would make for me, summers at Camp Dearborn. These are the times that I hold sooo dear to my heart. You are my BIGG BROTHER and I will FOREVER think of you in in this light! I LOVE AND MISS YOU SOOO MUCH!!! Luve your little Brother Brian. XOXOXOX
Say Hi for me to all the ex-Tigers up there Norm. Love You
So sorry for the sudden loss of your brother. Sending my prayers and love.
Norm was such a special being and we all find ourselves missing him more each day. I found a Native American Prayer that spoke to me and I wanted to share with all who cared for him. "I give you this one thought to keep- I am with you still - I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on the snow, I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning's hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not think of me as gone - I am with you still - in each new dawn." Peace, Norm. Love from Florida, Callie Northagen-Braboy
With greatest sympathy on such a sudden loss. The heavens are lucky to have him. Peace
My sympathy towards the Braboy family, "Stormin Norman was a good kid. I remember playing nerf football in his living room, stratomatic for years, and his infectuous laugh. I ran into him a few years back, and he told me he had a son he never new that was 12 I think. He was so excited, I hired him for some odd jobs, we took in a tiger game, and he said he was moving to Florida. I will always remember him fondly. God Bless you Norm, and your family in these trying times
I will always love you Norm. I know you are at peace now.

I am so sorry I didn't make the funeral I just found out today. May God bless you all !!! Peace
