Norma--our tough cookie, our little English Rose...we will miss you terribly. You were our friend, our mentor, our sister and our "Mom"; our luck at Bingo and our ruthless Farkle player. You were also our strength and our inspiration.
Many many thanks to your family for sharing you with us.
--Love you, from your friends at Cherrywood
