Gone from our sight, but never our memories, and never our hearts. When someone you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure. May you treasure all of your memories with Norma as my family surely will. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.

Norma was already missed when she moved to Florida. I was so sad to hear she was ill and wished I could have come and seen her. So sorry.

Norm, even though I only knew you a short time I knew you were one hell of a lady. You'll sorely be missed. Craig, Keep strong and carry on. All we need is love!

In the garden of our lives, Norma was a brilliantly bright sunflower, for the love, laughter and joy that she radiated in our lives was truly a blessing. She will always remain a treasured friend. May it help, Craig and family, to know that friends are sharing the sorrow in your hearts.

Dear Craig, Norma’s siblings, step children, and grandkids...I have never seen someone fight as hard as Norma to stay with her Craig and life with family, friends. She was always up beat, positive, and thinking of everyone else....she had no trouble holding a conversation, she was all into whatever and whomever was visiting. And oh, she could do some texting! She loved to laugh, have friends visit and throw a party...She adored her dog, and she loved her husband, always talking about doing things to make life easy for him once she left this earth. Such a bright light despite her suffering! My sincere sympathy to you Craig and all the friends, family blessed with experiencing such an amazing spirit of love and compassion, hope, and sharing of her journey.

My lovely wife Norma. God first awakened me to what the true love feels like. Once I was ready, only then did God present the Gift of You! Even though now you have gone back to Him, I will continue to cherish his Gift the rest of my days. I still Love you and I’m still your best friend. Pea1 and Pea 3
