I will miss talking to you on the phone and just hearing your happy go lucky voice. I love you Miss Hattie.

Arthur and family,
Hattie will be greatly missed. I wish I could have been in Topeka to celebrate her home going with you. Mother will miss her immensely. We always saw Hattie when I was home. I am sitting here in my kitchen looking at a lovely gift she gave me for Christmas several years ago. I use it often. May the Lord comfort your hearts and fill your days with blessing knowing that you lovingly cared well for her.

God Bless.

I remember Mrs. Norman when I worked with her at Topeka State Hospital in the early 70's. She tought me alot on how to handle patients. She was fair but could get tough. I left Topeka State in the mid 70's but never forgot her and what she taught me. When I would see her at a store I would always talk to her and she always knew my name.

Topeka lost a very great LADY.

The parting of a loved one is never easy for us who must say good-bye in this stage of our lives. But we have an eternal comfort in knowing that we may meet again on the other side and spend an eternity living in peace, comfort, and surrounded by the love of the Father.

To the family and friends of Hattie Norman:

My deepest condolences on your loss, which is also a loss suffered by the entire community of Topeka. However, Hattie's indominatable spirit lives on in all she touched. I first met Hattie when she was an officer in the Monroe NIA, then later during her involvement in the Silver Haired Legislature while I worked at the Jayhawk Area Agency on Aging and her service as a Community Action board member. This lady exemplified the BEST of...

Mrs. Norman will be missed. She was a pioneer among black Americans and Kansans alike. Through the efforts of both Hattie and Sharon Cavens, the East Topeka Senior Citizen Center is a testiment to cooperative efforts among blacks in Topeka. Sincerely,

Take comfort in knowing that now you have a special guardian angel to watch over you.
