Norma and I shared many good times and much laughter together through many letters, cards and phone conversations over the years. She was a dear friend. I will miss our conversations and your infectious laugh, Norma. 🙏😔 My daughter, Robin, pictured here with me, reminds me much of Norma and Sue.

Some of my fondest memories with aunt Norma was being able to spend our Thanksgiving and Easters together in Florida, at my moms house (Ana and Peter). My kids always looked forward to sharing their experiences with Aunt Norma and being able to update her on all the new ways they use technology. They were holidays spent with lots of laughter and joy, we will miss her dearly, but take joy in the fact that we had her in our lives for so many years.
