Our condolences and prayers to the entire Bell family. Although, I was a youngster when Norman, his brothers, and Daisy would visit Aunt Addie, I recall the joy that these visits brought her. After moving back home to Texas, I had hoped to reconnect with my first cousins and meet their families! Rest in Heaven, Norman and give extra hugs to your parents and mine!
