Norma and I worked together in kindergarten for many years. I feel I became a better teacher from her influence. She had an innate sense of what a child needed and was always willing to compassionately meet these needs. The most needy children were the ones she was most likely to take under her wings during mentor. I know that there are many people out there that are better people today because of Norm. Rest In Peace my friend.

My Loving Gran


When I had no shoulder to lean on,
and my eyes were filled with tears.
I had my Nana to count on,
to drive away my fears.

Despite all the wrong I’d done,
when the light I couldn’t see,
Gran was my shining sun,
who gently consoled me.

She always encouraged and inspired me,
to follow my every dream,
she’d tell me that I was not alone,
cause she was my team.

She’d tell everyone about me,
what I was doing, when and how,
she preserved everything I ever gave her,
from the time I was little till now.

Without you Gran we will be so lost,
my tears just won’t dry,
but I believe your one of gods angels,
you spread your wings and fly.

We are sure you are around us,
in eve
...ry thing we do,
your one of Gods angels we do trust,
we can see all are wishes come true.

Dear Gran we really miss you,
and wish with us you’d always be,
but since God wants you too,
I’ll keep your memories alive in me.

I will miss you and will keep your memories dear to me the rest of my day, until I see you again Gran I thank God everyday you were my Gran.
Ily,
Heather
