Martin and I are sorry to learn of Ms Norma's passing. She was our neighbor and since we shared the same house number (but different streets) we often got each other's mail. Delivering each other's mail gave us the opportunity to chat and laugh. We have missed her. Martin and I offer the family and all those that love her our sincere condolences. Martha Ratcliff
