Norma was a "straight up" person. What you saw was what you got and she told it like it was. That is something to be said for a person these days, in a world full of phonies. Our paths crossed quite a few times back in the days of my youth when her husband "Kalb" worked at our Gas Station. I always thought well of her and respected her. To all the kids and family, please know that thoughts of her and the Kalb family are in my heart.

I met Norma and her family in 1989 shortly after moving here from Florida with my son who was 4 yrs old and i was only 19 yrs old at the time and also having lost my own Mother a few months prior, Norma became sort of a surrogate Mother to me ,and a an adoptive grandmother to my then 4 yr old son Michael. She really helped me get through a difficult time. I later on began a relationship with her eldest son and we had a child in 1998 Matthew having him forever linked me to her. Norma was a very loving Mother and Grandmother. Holidays were always a huge event in the family Norma would stay up all nite the eve before a holiday to cook a big ham her hams were legendary and a big Turkey i would always be in the kitchen helping and i learned so much in the kitchen from her i loved that it reminded me of my moms house back in Florida growing up. Norma was such a wonderful cook as was my mother they had alot of similarities about them being apart of that family filled a huge void in my life when i moved here. It has been many yrs since i was a daily part of her life but the yrs of memories that we shared i will always cherish. Norma i know u were suffering know that u were in my thoughts everyday and although i was sadened to see u go i am glad that u are no longer in pain. You will be missed by so many but know that u touched many lives while u were here and created many happy memories forall of us to keep..

This i write to you with as much love as i have to give.

Love , Belinda Albury
