I am so sorry to hear about Norma's passing. she was a very sweet lady. I worked with her at Dix for over 20 years. I have many fond memories of her and of Allen. We had many conversations about our families. She loved hers dearly. Kent and Trent, my heart goes out to you. Living in the Charlotte area, I did not get to see her but a few times after we retired. Lillian McGregor and I had just discussed on Tuesday a plan to go visit her in Greenwood very soon only to find out she had passed. I will never forget her and all the thoughtful things she did including always leaving me a birthday card at my work station in the lab. Rest in peace, Norma.
