I met Norm and Jodie while on a cruise to Hawaii in 2007. By sheer chance one day I noticed him reading a booklet on the World of Warcraft and we were gaming friends from that time on. We met again personally when he and Jodie came to the West Coast.
Norm (Eare) and I( Wilshaman) were truly gaming buddies--completing innumerable quest lines and eliminating an impressive lot of monsters. During those many gaming hours we were also chatting about current events or discussing what we had done in the past.
May the Good Lord bless and keep my dear friend.
