I can remember " helping" Norma make bread on Sat. always Saturday. The 5 cent ice cream that was so big to 4 yr old. I had so much fun and then of home across the road and up the long, long driveway So many years ago, 71 and how things have changed.
I am so sorry that I did not take the time to visit. My loss.

Gone is the face we loved so dear
Silent,the voice we loved to hear
Too far away for sight or speech ,
But not too far for thought to reach!

A special aunt is someone special to remember with warmth,think of with pride and cherish with love!

We will certainly miss you, Aunt Norma!
Harry & Estela
Our condolences, Ellen and Gary

Hi Ellen and Gary, so sorry for your loss. She was a special Lady!! Thankfully we were in to see her last summer.
Always remember her having treats for us kids and for our Girls when we visited as a family.
Mom and your Mom always had great visits and laughs together.
May God be with you at this time.
Richard and Mary Brittain
