Ed and family, don't really have the words that might console you at this time, but do rest assured that Norma will be fondly remembered as a friend, wife and mother who always did what mothers do. We'll be praying for all of you.

We will treasure all of the times that you and Norma spent in Canada with us. We were so grateful to share so many good times with the both of you. We know Norma is in heaven looking down on us, and she will always be a part of your visits up north. We are truly sorry to hear of Norma's passing and we send our deepest sympathy. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
