Norma was like a second Mom to me when I was a boy next door in Richwood Run. I knew her before I started grade school so I thought it was so neat when I’d see her in Jacksonburg School cooking. I ate alot of suppers at her house back then, me and Mary would play badminton for hours and then I’d go places with her, Carl, and Mary. Up to Opal and Dessie’s or over to my Aunt Mabel and Uncle Don Barr’s, which when I was young I couldn’t figure out how me and Mary had the same cousins but we were no relation. Bethann told me about Norma the past week and I was planning on going up to see her, but I waited too late. I will miss you Norma and I did love you like a Mom.

So sorry to hear about Norma. I was just thinking again about those beans she wanted. I have many good memories with her. I missed her after she left the library and now I will miss her even more.
