I have known Mrs. Norma my entire life. What a precious Saint. My parents thought the world of she and Mr. Earl. She was our daughter Shelby’s afterschool teacher at Rockwell, and Shelby loved her. As you already know Mrs. Norma’s joy was her family. She was so proud of you and loved you all so much. Praying God will hold you all close to him through this very difficult time. We love you, Alice, Butch and Shelby Morris
