Mary and Bobby Norton are such good friends. I will never forget their friendship. It is hard to believe that it was 2013 when Mary passed away. I have such pleasant memories of the two of them. Bobby was crazy about Mary from way back and what a wonderful marriage they had. God bless you all . (My wife Charlene passed away June 21, 2019 and it has left a big void in my life? But i had Chy for 50 years, great years)

Dear Bob and family: We are very sad to hear of Mary's passing. My sister Louise and Mary enjoyed a lifelong friendship that few people ever achieve. Mary had a great sense of humor and enjoyed life to the fullest.
Growing up in South Boston during our time we all knew who the really good people were. Bobby, you and Mary were the best and were made for each other. I remember she couldn't wait for you to come home from the Service!
Mary will be missed by all of us. She will be remembered as long as we live. All the best.

I am so very sorry to hear about Mrs. Norton's death. She was a wonderful woman! I have such vivid and fond memories of the special times we spent together with her and all of you so many years ago. She always welcomed us so enthusiastically with her warm smile, tight hugs and sincere interest in our lives.
I know Bobby was waiting with open arms to reunite with his special mom once again...
My love and heartfelt sympathy to you all,
