    So sorry to hear about Mrs. Norma
    She was such a good neighbor to us at Parkway Apartments. She took our daughter to a ballgame and entertained her thecday we moved to Molino, January 29, 1994.

    Cary and Jo Ann, I am so sorry for your loss of Norma. We were friends way back when Jo Ann and Linda were little. Harold would cook country ham Christmas morning and we would stop by and eat a ham biscuit on the way to Mulberry. We have such changes in our life we end up not seeing each other as the years past. I am so glad Cary is my grand daughter and good mother to my three little greath. Jo Ann I am glad you are back in Fayetteville and you and Cary can be close. I am so sorry you have had such sadness and so close together. You all will be in my Prayers. Jo Ann you and Cary come to see me and we will tak over old times. Love Nana
