So sorry George and Jim about your loss. I remember Norma's piano playing at church and other events. She was wonderful. Once she had Bible Club in the firehouse. I think on one day I was the only one there. I would never miss a chance to hear about the Lord. As one of my mentors and because of her example, I started junior/children's church at a couple churches and taught for over 30 years. I still have the scalloped bowl she gave me as a wedding gift.
