To the Bagley Family, I really enjoyed holding various of conversations with Mrs Norma at the Southern Manor Assisting Living Center. She was such a joy and educated on her childhood, children and grandchildren. I will truly miss Mrs Norma and may God continue to bless the Bagley Family.

Norma was such a wonderful person. Through out my life I have always treasured the time I was able to spend just sitting and talking with her. She was one of my favorite people. I will miss here very much. She touched many people lives making them better. So sorry to hear about your loss.

To Norma’s family,
Our condolences on the loss of Norma that saddened us all. Reminisces of my cousin’s presence with her wit and humanity will remain in her absence.Her recollections of babysitting me while beating me up we’re hilarious. She spoke of her family with such love and gratitude ensuring that her memory will be honored. The connection between Norma, my father Elmer, and mother Margaret, was important and monumental in the true spirit of family. What a wonderful life we honor.

To Norma’s Family,
I was so sorry to hear of Norma’s passing. Even though we were only in Fayetteville a few times, we enjoyed so much spending time with Norma. She was so intelligent and had a wonderful memory, especially about our family, that I could sit and listen to her for hours. We shared the love of needlework and she showed me her quilts that were masterpieces. She loved her family and when we talked on the phone she would tell me about them. I know this is a great loss to all of you. Please accept my sympathy and I will call later in the week.
Love to all
Carol Ann Lambert Cardoso,
Norma’s cousin
