My memories of Norma center around how kind and sweet she was to my Dad whom she cleaned his house. She spoiled him rotten! I only hope Norma knew how much I appreciated all she did for my Dad. I was so very grateful to her and Junior! Norma was always gussied up and had a smile on her face! We have lost a sweet, caring, kind soul! My deepest sympathies to Junior and the Family! Much Love... Molly

My heart is broken. Norma was very special to me. Many happy memories on Mulberry st. She always had my back, as I was the only girl in a street full of boys. I could beat most of them up!! We walked hand in hand to the Nazerine church. I never remember a frown, except when we got a little too crazy with hot wheels in the basement. The New family was a second family to me as a kid. I will miss running into her and yacking and laughing. Norma is Praising our Lord and Savior now, and I know that! Prayers for her boys and families. All My Love!!
