In another photo, he vented about Alyssa's prolonged battle with addiction.
Sharing a photo of Alyssa in a resplendent white gown, Norman wrote, "The hurt I’m feeling I never thought could be so painful. Look how beautiful Alyssa was. She was so happy. She would tell me how excited she was about her future. She wanted to be a leader & inspire others. She would say “daddy I can do it.” Alyssa was the first love of my life. But now she’s gone. I remember one Valentines we took a limo to dinner. She would always say she wanted a man to treat her like her daddy. There are so many more memories I’ll share about my amazing daughter. Rest in love daddy’s girl. I miss you so much. 💔🙏🏼 "

"This is Alyssa giving her testimony a few months ago at @theharborhome . Alyssa fought addiction & wasn’t ashamed to share her story to save others. There is no doubt that Alyssa’s sudden death is a huge blow, but her death won’t be in vain. I’ll be using my platform to be the biggest advocate I can to fight drug addiction. That’s what Alyssa would want. She was doing so well. We’d been on so many daddy daughter dates the last few months & she was determined to fight all the way through. That’s what makes this tragedy so much worse. Alyssa was on top of the world. Every day she would say “daddy I got this.” Unfortunately, this evil world took my daughter & the pain is something I can’t describe. I would appreciate more prayers for me & my family. Next week will be difficult as we lay Alyssa to rest. I’m so thankful for all of you I really am. 💔🕊
