Norma was a good friend and classmate at Walkerton High School. We played together when we were younger, and remained friends through school although we were both closer to other classmates as we got older and went in different directions. The last time I saw Norma was at our 50th Class Reunion. I really enjoyed talking to her. In the last few years we connected again on Facebook which was really neat. Receiving a last comment a day or so before her death. I was really shocked to see Norma had passed
. it seemed impossible as there was no sign she was ill. My thoughts and prayers go out to Mary, Rich and family.
May Norma receive Gods most previous gift......peace with him in heaven for all eternity.
