A memory shared by Norris’s brother Alfie who was also his best friend:
May 1, 1956
We pulled the car from Springside to the farm with horses so we could overhaul the motor. A blizzard hit so we couldn’t drive the car out to the highway, so Monty (dad) pulled the car over snow drifts to the highway with his tractor. Dad headed back home and Alfie and Norris were heading west to their new destination of Cranbrook (where there is less snow). Alfie and Norris never stopped until they were in Cranbrook, wow was their first thought the grass is green and this is where we should stay. So up went the tent and they rested for a day. Next destination was Columbia Gardens where we stayed with Uncle Art and Uncle Bill, they secured jobs, fell in love, had families and finally had a place they could call home.
In loving memory of our beloved parents Norris and Doris Bagg who passed away within five months of each other.
We thought of you with love today but that is nothing new
We thought about you yesterday and days before that too.
We think of you both in silence
We remember how you both look.
Now all we have is memories and your pictures in our book
Your memory is our keepsake
With which we will never part.
God has you in his keeping
We have you both in our hearts.
We miss you very much and love you both dearly
