  1. Dear Lloyd and family, We were very sorry to hear about Norma. She was a wonderful lady and neighbor. We will always remember her stopping to take a break and sitting in our garage to talk during some of your little walks.

  2. Dear Lloyd, Sarah and Aimee: Norma was a kind, graceful, classy lady whose gentle thoughtfulness and sprightly intelligence could always bring a smile to others, and especially to you Lloyd. Paula and I have always felt your relationship was an example to which all of us could aspire. They say the pain you feel when someone passes is directly equivalent to the joy he or she brought you during their life. Knowing how wonderful Norma was, we can only imagine the pain now. Please accept our deep sympathy.
