Our hearts are broken over the loss of Ms. Norma but we can also rejoice because we know she is where she longed to be at the feet of Jesus and her sight has been restored and she is healed now. I'm sure it was a grand reunion to see Mr. Fred, her daughter and granddaughter and her great friend, Sue Sellers. We were so blessed to get to know Ms. Norma while we were teaching Sunday School at Somerset. We always looked forward to seeing her!! She always had something encouraging to add to our lesson every Sunday!! Her knowledge of the Bible and the Holy Land was so amazing to all of us!! I always love to visit her and hear more about some of her experiences in the Holy Land. She had friends everywhere she went!! Our loss here on earth is certainly Heaven's gain. May God bless all of her family with His peace and comfort. What a blessing it was to know her!! With Love and Deepest Sympathy, Melissa and Bob Wimbish

My heart is heavy right now but no doubt she is in heaven. I am grateful to have known her and to help her at Sommerset. May our gracious God bless and comfort all. Love and prayers Pat Scott
