It is heart wrenching to find out our precious Bizzle has passed! He was a wonderful man, husband, and father. My father took us to visit him and Ann. The children were laughing and playing so very happy! I know he is fishing with Jesus. Soon very soon we will all be together! Your southern most cousin Dawn Norris and family!
