So sad to hear of the passing of Norma, a guiding light in my world at a time of darkness. Norma was always there to support me with her gentle guidance and encouragement and words of wisdom. Please know her light will never go out in my heart.

From: Leah Seaman
Relation: A friend of Sue's and a friend of Norma's through the Kootenay Christian Contemplative group

I am so grateful to have known Norma’s presence in my life, these past few years, through our Contemplative Group. She was so wise, exuded love, and had a delightful sense of humour!
Holding you all in my heart and my prayers.

From: Sandra and David MacGillivray
Relation: Norma and our Mom were friends

I wanted to express our condolences on the loss of your mother. She was such a lovely kind woman and her friendship meant a great deal to our Mom, Margaret Purdy. When we moved here three years ago it was Norma who took Mom under her wing at St Saviors making her feel welcome and included.

From: David Squance
Relation: Norma was a good friend my wife, Maria, met through the handicapped societies, both provincial and regional.

Thinking about you all, having just come across this news. I had thought of possibly visiting Norma as I drive home from Cranbrook.
