    Lynne and Michael, thank you so much for this beautiful expression of Norma’s life. I loved her so much and will always cherish the 2 hour visit we had in October- laughing, talking and laughing more! She was a godly woman whose goal was to walk in obedience and please Him. I will forever be grateful for the way she touched my life.

    Michael and Lynne, my condolences to you both during this time. I loved Norma and admired her gift of music. What a beautiful video tribute to her beautiful life. I understand how difficult it is to miss both parents. I hope you find strength in the memories you have, and that you find comfort from our Heavenly Father
