A BIG SOUL –
Nov. 18, 2022 – It was during this call that Norman realized that something was terribly wrong with his daughter.
“They said, ‘Mr. Norman, Alyssa overdosed last night.’ So my response was, `Where is she? I want to come see my daughter,’” he said.
But he’d never get the chance to see her alive again— 26-year-old Alyssa Victoria-Rose Norman was gone.
Her father said that this year has been extremely hard for his entire family, but he’s been finding ways to deal with the grief one year later.
One of the hardest things for him to grapple with though was the fact that Alyssa never intended on going to bed that night and never waking up.
“She wasn’t planning on passing away. I had plans the next day to spend time with her,” Norman explained.
Although the two did speak the night before Alyssa’s passing, Norman shared that his daughter didn’t sound like herself when she spoke to her father.
Norman went to bed with an unsettling feeling— only to learn the following morning that Alyssa had passed away from a fatal overdose.
