I know heaven is rejoicing now because they have received a very special angel. To say that I will miss you is a understatement. You was with me through some of the hardest times of my life. I knew that whenever I had a worry or a problem I could go to you , you would pull me into that big bosom of yours and hug my worries away. I admired you for the person you are. I loved your sense of humor and your freedom of speech. You always made me laugh and feel secure. This is not goodbye, we will see eachother again.
Until then I'll be waiting for your hugs.
I love you so very much
Annetta

My precious, precious Aunt Normie....my heart is forever broken without you. I feel overwhelmed with pride reading the obituary. My Aunt worked hard providing and sharing her whole life. She had the most beautiful garden in her side yard! Full of egg shells, banna peels and compost items.. it was loved just as she was!
