Leah Norman was a dear lady whom I had the pleasure of teaching Sunday School with at FBC. She was always kind to our daughter Melanie and gave her a baby shower in her home. When I think of her ... kindness and Grace come to mind. She was a very good mother to her daughters. Sarah was our daughters best friend at church. I will always cherish knowing her.

Sarah and Laura, your beautiful mama loved you so much! She was always talking about her girls and granddaughters. A couple of months ago , we were having a conversation and she said: “ I want to be remembered for loving Jesus”. To think she is now with Jesus, her parents and sister, I know how happy she is. I love you girls and you know I will always be here for you. Sending my love, hugs, and prayers.
