Norma was a wonderful person who gave of herself to so many. She graciously babysat for Jon as a toddler and Shannon as a baby while I worked. The kids loved Norma and she was so loving to them. I was forever thankful for how she helped me when I really needed it. She was a great mom, wife and friend Norma will be deeply missed. She is rejoicing in Heaven with her Lord Jesus!

Kristi & Joe,
My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. You were blessed to have good parents who loved you both. I can remember your Grandma Opal and my daughter Jennifer playing with Kristi growing up. Markle has a lot of good memories. May God sustain you during the months of adjustment that lay ahead.
