Aunt Julia was a wonderful person. I will always treasure memories of all the times she traveled east to visit. Her visits always meant so much to my mother and I. I loved seeing her smile and hearing her laugh. My favorite aunt will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with the Norene family.

Grandma was always smiling and happy to see us. She loved her kids and grandkids fully. The last time I saw her, she was not feeling well, but STILL told us that we looked good and that Quinn was "so cute." She loved her hamburgers and her kitties. She will be so missed! Love you, Grandma!!
