Norma Jean... the laughs and conversations we had while you were at Garden Place I will never forget. Your smile and laugh was contagious and was often a bright part of my day and I thank you! I really enjoyed the time we spent together. May you rest in peace and God bless you.... till we meet again. HUGS!
