My sister both thought of Norma as a friend and sister. Norma made everyone feel special.
Love Norma so much! She was like my real sister. Named my daughter after her! We know that Angels are singing, and Heaven is brighter now. She and Oliver sure raised a precious family, too! Our love and prayers for all of them.

Norma was one of the classiest, admirable people I have ever known. She was a positive influence to me for 65 years. God took a great one, and she and Oliver will raise the quality of Heaven.
