So sorry for your great loss. Norma was a person I always wanted to be around as she was always happy & laughing. She made all happy. She dearly loved her children. I’ll never forget, Marcus, her only son was my boyfriend in fourth grade. Norma was selling Avon, & he gave me a bottle of perfume for Christmas. I was so excited. And Norma was so pleased. We need more people in this world like Norma. She really was an angel. ❤️

What fun we had together!
