    I was surely excited to watch Norman Bennett on KXII-TV every day when I am up at Daybreak with his show Norman Bennett and Guests at 5:25 A.M. I do remember him when I was growing up and coming to visit Oklahoma from Arizona on our vacations when we were young. He has been a very special friend to everyone in the Texoma area and I was so lucky to meet him on an unexpected surprise. You have been an inspiration to everyone and I will miss you. So long Norman Bennett good luck and be well.

    I wish Norman the best of everything but I cant help being sad. Its almost like loosing a family member. Seeing him on KXII all these years and movies he just because a part of all our lives in one way or another. God speed Mr. Bennett and please dont forget us. You are loved by so many people around here.

    That's definetly me holding that door open :). I'm gonna miss norm, I always enjoyed staying an extra thirty minutes to run audio or camera for his shows. He is probably one of the nicest people I've ever met, and I'm going to miss him. He has been a huge inspiration to me, and I will never forget him. I hope he comes back soon to visit!
