It was always a joy seeing her out and about. She had the prettiest smile I've ever seen. It was an honor to know her. She was an amazing woman. God bless you Norma, we will miss you. 💜 you forever.

I enjoyed and loved taking care of Norma the last 5 months I have worked at The Waters!! I became very attached to her and gave her all my love everyday taking special care of her! Every day she would smile at me as I leaned towards her ear and sang the song My girl! To her! She didn't care that I really can't sing she just looked at me and smiled! Made my day!! On Sunday I went in and sat with her and told her I loved her and she mumbled it back to me! She's forever in my heart!! Prayers to all the family! 💜 U Norma!!
