  1. May God grant you and your family peace during this time. May He uplift you and comfort you as only He can. My prayers are with you.

  2. Sons of Confederate Veterans

    Sadly on Saturday, we lost one of our Confederate compatriots, Corporal Norman Lovorn. Norman was a member of the Honor Guard for the Gen. Felix H. Robertson Camp #129 Sons of Confederate Veterans.

    “I’ll eat when I’m hungry, I’ll drink when I’m dry,
    If the Yankees don’t kill me, I’ll live until I die,
    If the Yankees don’t kill me and cause me to mourn –
    I am a Rebel Soldier and far from my home!”

  3. Norman was a member of the George M Denton Masonic Lodge 24 and the Felix H. Robertson, Sons of Confederate Veterans Camp 129, with me. He never said much but he was a tireless worker for both groups and he will be sorely missed by both groups.

  4. Norman was a great friend to have. He was liked by all. He was very proud of his Confederate ancestry. He volunteered and worked hard on many diifferent things in Confederate groups.
    He will be greatly missed
    My deepest sympathy to the family.

  5. I’ve known Norman since attending school at LaVega. Norman was a good person and always friendly and cheerful. I enjoyed talking with Norman many times. He recently attended our class reunion where he and many LaVega classmates re-connected. My sincere sympathy for his immediate family and friends. May he and his family find peace during this difficult time.
