My momma was the kindest, most loving person I have ever known. She loved her family, friends, but most of all, she loved her Savior, and spoke freely about Him to everyone she met. Because of her love and care for me as a child, it was easy to believe that there was a God who loved and cared about me, also. I miss her each and every day, but know that I will see her again. All her heartaches are forgotten. It's an honor to be her daughter.

My mother was Norleene’s baby sister. Through thick and thin they remained loving and loyal to one another. Mama adored her sister and we visited Sulphur often when we were kids. When they became separated in old age due to their health and care situations, Aunt Neen wrote letters to Mama faithfully. Even though Mama wasn’t capable of writing back, the letters meant a great deal to her and to all of us.

I am so sorry for your lose. Aunt Norleene was a loving and kind woman. I have attached a picture of her and mom together. I think the picture shows two loving sisters that are together again.
