Cheryl, I am so sorry to hear of Noreta's passing. I do not know if you remember me, but I went to school with Noreta, last time I saw her was at Gayle Hale's home. We were all friends. We both went to see Gayle at that time. God bless you!

Cheryl
I send a farewell to your mom ,Noreta who was a pistol that we were all blessed to know,she lived a long fruitful life , she was privileged to have a loving daughter taking care of her to the end, I feel your pain , and there will be days that you ask yourself “where should I go? To the left where nothing is right? Or the right where nothing is left? Cheryl you are human and it’s ok to melt down and cry, just don’t unpack and live there, ... Noreta would hate that for you...mourn her,then try live for her,let her look down at you and smile ,
GOD BLESS,You Noreta , and god give you strength Cheryl
Your friend
Denise and Russell
