Monday, May 25, 2020Norman was like a beloved brother in law. For more than fifty years we have shared Thanksgiving, Christmas dinners, summer cookouts, tennis matches. We have laughed at Norm's jokes, congratulated him when the Red Sox won, and cheered with him when when Federer aced his opponent. Susan was there when Norm's play opened on Broadway. (Drinks afterward at the Plaza.) We watched Paul a d Daisy grow up and for twenty-some years we've been members of our no name book club along with Norman and Harriet. Loosing Norman is a great loss and a turning point in life. Good-by, dear friend!

Monday, May 25, 2020My "Uncle Norman was a kind and gentle talented soul, I remember driving down to Larchment NY with my artwork and sister Susan in tow, to do an art show for his theatre, we stayed with them and aunt Harriet made us all a wonderful breakfast! I must have inherited Normans and the Kline genes for creativity, I was a sixtys rock and roll/jazz drummer who recieved a full scholarship to art school and have a fifty year career as a fine artist, Norman was SO supportive of my ART! I WILL MISS HIM DEARLY! and send love and peace to Harriet, Daisy, Paul, Brooke, Lola and Lauren and of course the SALTY SEA! Cousin Howard

Saturday, May 23, 2020Norman cast me in my first - and last - theatrical role, as Eeyore the Old Gray Donkey in a children’s production of Winnie the Pooh. He was a warm, kind, wonderful man. Lots of hugs to Harriet, Daisy, Paul and family.

Saturday, May 23, 2020Norman was an uncle to me, although we were technically not related. I can’t remember a time when we didn’t celebrate holidays with the Klines, discussing movies, politics, books, our studies, and favorite travel destinations at the table long after the meal was finished. I never hear a Boston accent without thinking of Norman. I will miss Norman and will always gladly participate in reminisces of him with Harriet, Paul, and Daisy. Much love and condolences, also from Karsten, Johannes, and Russell ❤️

Wednesday, May 20, 2020Norman welcomed me to the neighborhood when I took the E.D. job at The Rye Arts Center in 1990. He embraced collaboration: "the more shoe stores on the block, the more shoes we sell." He gave modern dance his full support at the Emelin for which I will always remember him as brave, values-oriented and forward-thinking. Rest in peace.

Tuesday, May 19, 2020As the Technical Director for the Emelin Theater, Norman was a fair boss always finding a way to make the work more fun and trying out jokes. He had a very quick wit and a good sense of what the community wanted with regard to entertainment at the time. He brought Paul Stookey to record a record for three days and the likes of Harold Prince. There was a wonderful Brando series of film classics and an authors series. I throughly enjoyed working for Norman and will miss him. My condolences to his family for their loss. May he Rest In Peace.

Tuesday, May 19, 2020The Emelin Theatre will be forever grateful for Norman's multi-decade leadership. Norman made a huge contribution to cultural life in Westchester, and nurtured the Emelin from its very beginning. He was instrumental in making the Emelin the jewel of a theater that it was then and is today. Mark Ettenger Pres. Emelin Theatre
