We sill miss you Norton


3 years ago today, our sweet Grampa Norton ran off to the Bridge to be with his brother Ralphie (the one who came before). Norton is on the right in the pikshur above, taken about a day after the mom and the dad lady person finded him and Trixie on the side of the road in New Haven, CT. He and Trixie lived wif them for 18 years. We love our grampa Norton very much. He sent Billy to us so that we would always haf some gingersnap in our lives.
Grampa Norton, we will always love you and miss you and someday we will see you again at the Bridge.

Three years? It does not seem possible. I remember G.Norton's passing.

It's good that they finded Billy for you and sent him to live with you.

It's hard to believe that it's three years already. I remember when Grampa Norton went to the Bridge. I am sure that he remembers and misses you, too, but you will see him again some day.
