Norma has been a very important part of my life and the lives of my family. She has been like another mother to me and grandmother to my kids. She would see me sitting outside with the kids when they were little and come over and visit. I miss those times and all of our talks. We have shared lots of laughs and a few tears together. I will always treasure the times when Norma, my Mom, Janet McMillan and I spent shopping and going out to lunch. We would laugh until we cried. Norma would often spoil us by bringing over some delicious bread or rolls that she had just baked still warm out of the oven. She was a very special lady and we will miss her tremendously. Rest in Peace my dear frie...nd!Read more
