To my cousins, Debra, Terry, and Gary, I love you all and loved my Aunt Norma Jean. Any time she came and visited Mom, Ronnie and I always went over to see her without fail. She lived a blessed life. I know you're going to miss her, but rejoice that she's now with Uncle Kenneth and Harold, all her pain is gone, she's whole again and sitting by the Hand of Jesus! Is that not what we all strive for? She waits to welcome you all with open arms when it's your turn to join her!!!! When Mom told me she passed, I took a long walk and talked to her and thanked her for being in my life, in Mom's life, for being such a great sister to Mom, and a great mom to all of you. I have no doubt she heard me......Love to all of you, Candy

Please know that there are people who care and more importantly Psalm 34:18 tells us that "God is near to those that are broken at heart. He is the God of all comfort. My prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time of grief.
