Jean and Joni,
You were everything a Mother would want in her last days. You were constantly by her side and the love and tenderness you showed her was what all of you needed. I will miss her smile and sparkling blue eyes. I can still hear her laugh. It is a tough time, but a joy knowing she is again with the love of her life and our Lord, and knowing we will see her again in Glory. Love you all...

Norma was a real sweetheart. Since she is now with her real sweetheart, Rea, we must without reservation, let her go.

I will so miss my wonderful and dear friend, Norma. She always had a kind word and a hug for me when she saw me. She was truly a very special person and such a blessing in my life.
