Called Norma today to wish her a Merry Christmas. Her phone was disconnected. I knew something was wrong. I recently sent her flowers when she told.me she had a heart attack. Told her to rest, get healthy and we'll talk then.
I am broken hearted. I worked with Norma at Pratt & Whitney. She was the nicest, most thoughtful person. I truly adored her. Tears are streaming down my face.
RIP dear Norma..You are now with the Heavenly body of saints and angels. Our Lord welcomes you with open arms. Jack and family are by the gate . I'll see you again.
Your friend, always

Visited Aunta Norma a few times the past couple years. Her spunk and zest for life were infectious. I loved visiting her if just to watch her fight me for the lunch ticket at her local eatery. Wish I could have played a round of golf with her. She will be missed by many people.
