Im proud to say Norma was a friend and a good person to work for. Great sense of humor. Wish I had crossed paths with sooner. She was the kind of person you wanted to work for and she had a great appreciation for those that did right by her. There should be more Norma ODonnellz in this world. RIP my friend.
