    My condolences Debbie. I'm reminded of the family reunion in Arkansas some 10 years back. All the Norvell brothers and sisters and most of their families were there. Looking through the pictures, I could see the joy and affection everybody shared. I hope that carries through for you in the days ahead.


    Our sincere sympathy, Debra, on your loss. Your father loved you to the moon and back; you were the apple of his eye. He taught you well; you were a loving daughter to him until his last day. May the cherished memories you hold dear in your heart help you through the difficult days ahead.


    Phil was one of the best friends I have ever had, We had horses together, in fact I bought a young horse from him which turned out to be one of the best calf roping horse and barrel horse I ever owned. Phil and I worked cattle together and I worked the stock show and Rodeo with him for years. He was a good man and the type that would seal a deal with a hand shake. I will always remember him as a hell of a man and a hell of a good friend.
