Norma was a very lovely lady and librarian.  She was always happy to help. My children, as they were growing up, adored her and loved talking with her at the library. She will be sadly missed.

Dear Don & Family,

I am sorry to hear about Norma's passing.  The Pasma family always considered her a good friend.  In fact, Don and Norma were a couple of our very first friends when we moved to LaRue over 26 years ago.  They remained our friends for all those years.  Our children all have fond memories of Norma in the library and her kindness to them every time they came in.  She always showed an interest in them and Becca & I appreciated that.  I am sorry that I cannot be there with you on Friday since I am in Romania.  I will pray for you and be assured of the Pasma family's love for you.  God bless you.  

Pastor Tim Pasma

To Don & family, We are so sorry to hear of your loss. Norma was such a fine lady. She had a special place in our hearts and she will be very much missed. We always enjoyed visiting with her at the band organ rallies. That is where we met her and Don. We also went to visit them at their home a couple of times and Jerry did some work for them on one of their organs. You will be in our thoughts and prayers. I am so very sorry we can not come down to the funeral.

To Donald Redd and Family:
My heart goes out to you and your wonderful family at this time of grief.  I was so sadden on hearing of Norma's death. She looked so good at the Reunion last August even though I knew she had Alzheimers, I just  didn't expect it to be this sudden.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and you family.  
God Bless all of you.

The world is a little darker, though the heavens shine brighter with Norma Jean's passing.  She was a very important part of the LaRue that I grew up in, and all who knew her were better for it.  You are all in our thoughts and prayers.
