My Mom and I would like to express our condolences to Norm and his family. Belle was a beautiful person with a great heart. I remember as a young boy living in South City during the holidays she would always want to stop by and visit with us. We enjoyed her company very much and she always made us laugh.

May she Rest In Peace and God bless those she leaves behind.
