"Norma was a wonderful mom. I have many great memories of visiting Leon, but sitting at the Kitchen Table with her and just chatting. Always had a smile, took the time and made you feel at home immediately. Heavens a bit brighter now! Alfred can finally give his famous laugh and welcome her to the great reward. Best thoughts to all the family, she was an incredible person."
