Tom and Erica, and family,

I will miss Norma every single day. What I will remember, forever, is that Norma embodied grace, class, and beauty in every interaction with both Eli and I. She made me a better person for knowing her. Her gift of teaching was powerful and empowering. She taught us the meaning of strength and hope in the worse time. The last thing she told me was to take care and that she loved me. I am so humbled by her.

Love Always, Eli & Sandy
