Dear Bill, Donna and Norma. My heart is saddened to hear of Auntie Norma's passing. She meant the world to me. I remember all the time your parents would come to the house to play poker on Saturday nights when we all were growing up. I will miss her loving smile.

What a wonderful Lady! She raised a wonderful family who passed down her skills and talents to the generations that followed. A lasting legacy to aspire to. She was sweet and kind and always had a bright smile for me when I was lucky enough to be in her presence. I will miss her but I will remember her in the faces of her family. Rest in peace Mrs P...
