Elizabeth Davis Ragsdale is our sister-in-law and Norman's sister so our families were quite close. I would occasionally get to go with my brother, Forrest when he would hunt with Norman and Roy. Many good memories.

Norman, as he was known to us, was our neighbor for several years. Also fun to talk to and my grandsons loved talking to him and he enjoyed talking with them.

I remember back in the 60's at Thankgiving, at grandma & grandpa Davis's house, we would always go rabbit & bird hunting. Have lots of memories. GOD bless your soul uncle Norman.
