    Kevin, Brain, Jeanne, Heather, Gail, Bev and all of the family,
    Russ and I send our condolences to you. Your mom was an amazing, beautiful person inside and out. I have so many fond memories of her, so glad we got to share many Christmas times and visits over the years. I think of her and see her beautiful smile and those eyes twinkling with love, how they would light up when she looked at her family.
    Rest in Peace Norma.

    My condolences to your family. I always enjoyed the visits with Norma while dropping off her cosmetics. During our last visit, she shared family memories while we looked at the many pictures on her walls. She was a lovely lady and I will miss her.
