Dear Michael, Erika, Liam and Audrey,

So sorry for your loss and thinking of you during this difficult time. Your Mom (Grandma) was a special lady with a heart of gold and was so proud of all of you.
From the first day we met I knew Nora and I would become friends even though she was my client. Nora was a big supporter of my business and would spread the word to anyone who would listen, I will always be grateful for that.
You fought a courageous battle Nora, now rest in peace. You will be missed.

Sincerely,
Angela Shaw

I have nothing but fond memories of Aunt Nora. She was fun-loving, caring, and compassionate and always had a big hug and kiss for all of her nephews and nieces. Like Tony said, say hi to our mom in heaven.

I pray for all those who mourn the loss of Nora. A person, who not only saw good in everyone she encountered, but a person who inspired people. I recall her telling me of a person who ministered to her at her home. When this person found out Nora was moved to a hospital, she visited her there. Nora made people who came to minister to her, left wanting to be in her company, forever. To listen to her calmness, her strong faith and her 'Irish' will to accompany you. Gratitude for being in your presence, Nora. Until we meet again.
