  6. Norvell Green will be missed by many, myself included. I only knew him for the few months I worked at Camelot earlier this year, but I grew to love him dearly. When I read the obituary this morning I cried at work. I remember this one day I was getting him dressed for church and I put his glasses on him. I told him that he looked pretty handsome and he flashed me a smile and said, "you should see me with my teeth in". My deepest, most heart-felt condolences go out to Martha and the rest of the Green family. I truly feel honored for having had the chance to have met this wonderfully stubborn man with the love for biscuits and gravy.
