Aunt Norma was one the most beautiful, loving, and influential women in my life. I have so many awesome memories to choose from for just one. I do remember and always looked forward to, that when you stepped into her home or heart you felt her unconditional love. I love you my Aunt "Nornie" and you will be forever in my heart.

Gran has always been there, ready to talk, listen or make a bowl of ice cream. She loved to tell the story of how her and Papa met. How she thought she was having a boy only to find she'd been blessed with a beautiful girl. She was always direct and ready for hugs. I love her and will miss her greatly as will all of my family.
