    Norie and I were best buds and top notch writers in the 70’s. We met at CHQR and kept a close friendship as we moved around within the industry, ending up together again at CFCN Radio. Our ways parted once more over a stupid drunken argument (we both drank far too much back then)and we never met again. I’ve wondered about her all these years, wished we could have made up and renewed our deep friendship, and am saddened to learn of her death. I should have sought her sooner…
