Clarence and Bessie DeWitt
This is a picture of Norm's grandparents on his mother's side. I'm not sure when this picture was taken, but you can see the head of a child at the bottom of the picture, and they were pretty young at the time.
Norm was named after his two grandfathers, so I was confused. He was named "John Norman" - John after John Lars Peterson, but where did the "Norman" come from?
Ah! I have been enlightened ... his DeWitt grandfather was "Clarence Norman." I'm so glad he wasn't named "John Clarence" ... I really don't like the idea of calling him "Clarence!"
Oh, and Norm was usually called Norm because there were so many Johns in the neighborhood when he was growing up. My favorite John was John Spease, but that's another story!
It's already 27º out, sunny and NO WIND. A beautiful day coming up. You have a beautiful day!
