Leona - You and Stanley touched so many of our lives. My Mom
always talked about her fun times at the "Lake" and Myrtle Beach.
I have such happy memories of my visit to see you and my "Norris"
family in Floral City. A great retirement home that you created
Julie and Jackie, it was an honor to have known your Dad !

See you on the other side dear Uncle.
