When i went to college, i took all of the graduation cards I received at my party with me so i could write thank you notes. I have always been terrible at writing those, and i never did get around to sending them. I specifically remember you and Norman's card and your generous gift and although it's FAR too late, thank you both for your love and support. Although we are somewhat distant relatives, I can always picture both of your wonderful, loving, light-up-a-room faces. My mom adored Norman so much - she talked about how the world revolved around him (in her eyes) when she was a kid. He comforted her during her divorce and even made her laugh during a time my mom was struggling to even crack a smile.
I am so sorry for your loss...and i am sorry i did not get to know Norman better in this life...but i look forward to seeing him and my Dad (and all our other lost loved ones) HEALTHY, WHOLE, PAIN-FREE, AND OVERFLOWING WITH JOY AND LOVE for the rest of eternity.
I pray for God's love to encapsulate you during this painful time.
Much love and sympathies,
Rebecca Sadler (formerly Rebecca Roblaski, Sally Jo's middle daughter)
