My heart and prayers go out to the Miller Family. Norma first befriended my brother Sam as a child. When we moved to Indiana in 1989, she befriended our whole family. She was always kind and generous. Strawberries, Bridge Festival, and church carry ins always bring sweet Norma to mind. I miss you already, dear friend. Rejoice in Heaven!

It was a pleasure to care for Norma. She was a wonderful person. I only knew her a short time but I could tell how much she was loved by her family. I am sorry for your loss. Fly high Norma Jean!! ♡
