Memory
by Jenny B. for Norman Cleveland, Navy, Cook, Honored by Forest Lawn East Cemetery

My dad was very proud of his Navy service. I'm sure his fellow Navy comrades will remember him as a a kind ,gentle soul who cooked a good meal! When it was discovered that my dad was an only son, he was sent home. If it hadn't been for that he would have probably had a long satisfying career in the Navy.
