Hello , my name is Rodney Hullender. I was Norma’s hairdresser.
There are so many wonderful memories I have of Norma, she always had a smile when she came into the salon. She made everyone at the salon laugh. She told me on one occasion that my assistant Annette moves so slow that if she is walking behind her, that she gets so tired because she said Annette moves like a snail and that she almost falls asleep following Her to the shampoo bowl to get her hair shampooed for me to style it for her. Norma always had a great sense of humor.
I loved her and will miss her greatly. Ted I’ll be keeping you in my prayers. I’m so sorry.
