Sending my deepest love and prayers for comfort, peace and strength for my families during this time and always. I love you Aunt Norma. I will always hold dear, the memories of spending time with you and Uncle Charlie at your home when most of my cousins still lived at home with you. God bless you all and I love you endlessly. 🙏🏻
