I was so blessed to have mom in my life as well as my home I have waited years to have this quality time with her. I’m just sorry it wasn’t under better circumstances for her I wish I could have made it all go away. You were my Best Friend who I Loved, Cherished, who brought my family and I Joy and Happiness most of all. I Pray that I made Mom Happy and proud as well I did my best and you always came first above anything else. I am deeply saddened that she suffered through those years mom never complained about any of it for she Brave and Strong throughout. I will treasure every memory we had and there were so many thank you for that!! Also loved our dog Kappy there was a Special bond and Kappy always knew if she would lay by her bedroom door with all of her toys Grandma would play with her eventually! Aaron who also lived with his Grams would give him a curfew she would wait up for him every night until he got home from work to jokingly tell him he missed his curfew. He also had a Special way of waking her up to Bocelli and her eyes always lit up!!! He said Grams was so smart she was a walking history lesson. She knew something about everything. The deep talks and good advice and how her sense of humor and how witty she was, and had a comeback for everything! They also had a very Special Bond with lots of Love.

I met Beautiful Norma Jean in my second year of high school, her first. We would spend the next two years, living the life of two teenagers, crazy in love. Enjoying Rock and Roll, Chocolate Malts, Fast Cars, and Drive-in-Movies. Then God blessed us, with a very early introduction into the World of Grown-Ups! Yep, and that’s just what we both wanted! A jump start into a life of being together, working hard, and raising a wonderful family. And that’s just what we did! After enjoying that successful life that we both loved, God wanted us to part. So we did! But never losing the love we had for each other and the wonderful family we created. Four Beautiful Daughters, Twelve Adventurous Grandkids, and Six Precious Great Grandchildren, whom will all be watched over now, from above, by our Beautiful Norma Jean! Still With Love, Ken

Norma, You were a special lady!. Always kind, sweet and loving to everyone and your strength, patience and courage was something to be admired. I know we had fun on the boat gambling but I think you always favored the crab leg buffet! I'll always remember the Xmas parties and your great gifts. Everyone always wanted to get your gift in the grab bag. May you rest in peace beautiful lady you will be missed by everyone. Love you, Marlene

Mom~ The biggest blessing this life ever gave me was having you for my mom. You were everything to me. I have always been so proud to call you my mom. I will forever treasure the special bond we share. Thank you for the million laughs, the hugs, wiped tears, the incredible love you gave me, the advice, for all of our dances, for being a true hero, and the best person I ever knew. I never knew someone that was liked by everyone they ever met~ and you would say well I am "popular"!! The amount of people you brought joy to and made feel loved is countless. Every room lit up when you walked in. You always knew how to make everyone laugh with your witty humor. You always td me you even crack yourself up! You took life's challenges on with grace, strength, kindness, and courage. You taught me to be strong and believe in myself, and reminded me always life is full of surprises, and that miracles happen every day. You told me to run my race! You set the bar so high as a mom, daughter, grandma, friend...you showed us who we should all strive to be. You told me this was a fight to the finish~ and your heart gave it everything you had. I am so very proud of you, and grateful for every moment I spent with you. I will miss you more than you will ever know, and if possible I love even more than that. I will always look for you in everything I do, and I know you will be with me always. Fly high in the Heavens mom~ enjoy your most beautiful set of wings. Until we dance again in the Heavens~ I will be seeing you in my dreams. I love you always!!! Love you, Kelly

Norma Jean, Thank you for the friendship , for your wit, and for your kindness. You will never be forgotten . I enjoyed our time at the boat , we never came home with a pocket full of money, but we came home with great memories of our friendship. Working with you for the past 20 years has been a pleasure and the love you showed to us and your customers is locked in our hearts. Rest in Peace Norma in God's Heavenly Home Love you and will miss you Jo Ann
