May you enjoy rest and enjoyment after a good life Norma. I say this in my knowing you and your understanding as Ron and Becky were so important in my life. I remember Robert and you so well as my friend's parents and remember how you were always so good to us and others. I know that you are relaxing and in heaven and wish you can tell my father hello also. God Bless you and all of your family and friends. Thank you for being so kind always, I never forget.
