Norma was the sweetest woman. I enjoyed playing bridge with her. Everytime Debbie and I would see her she always had a sweet smile and kind word. She will be missed. Heaven has gained an angel.

My heart is broken as I have lost a very dear friend. We enjoyed playing bridge, going shopping and just being together. Heaven has really received a special lady and I will miss her sense of humor, always a twinkle in her eyes.
