  1. Hello Newland Family, my thoughts and prayers are with all of you. There really aren't any words that will heal your pain. I guess find comfort that the pain will ease with time but your wonderful memories of her won't. I have a nice memory of her myself and that's of her always doing crossword puzzles :)

  2. Dear Newland Family,
    I am so sorry to here about Norma. My heart goes out to the whole family during this time of sadness. I remember Norma to be a very quiet person and very kind. My favorite memory of her was playing "Skip-Bo" or "Uno" with Donald and Andrea. My thoughts and prayers go out to the whole family.
