  He was easy to recognize and get to know; he had an infectious laugh, a dashing smile and a distinct southern charm about him that made it easy to love him. He never knew a stranger.
  Even though Narson loved hunting, the highlight of his day or night would be fishing his way up or down many of his favorite river ways. He was at peace when he was in the woods with nature.
  Narson lead a really full life. He was richer than most in friends who loved him. His life was full of adventures with both family and friends. He loved and lived each day to the fullest. “Part of the journey of life is the end. It’s what you choose to do in the middle that counts, don’t forget to live”…. He didn’t!
