    My sincere condolences to the Norris family. Mrs. Norris worked with my grandmother, Mercedes Smith, at Norris Office Products where she was always kind and gracious to everyone. It takes a lot to build and sustain a business and the Norris’ always gave more to the community than they received. To Mr. Norris, John, Perry, Teresa and the grandchildren, my thoughts and prayers are with you.
