    I’ll miss my Grandmother, all the things she taught my brother and I while we spent the summers with her, Michelle, and Grandpa.

    I am hooked on Asleep at the Wheel, and that would make her proud for sure.

    She was always the encouraging one, pushing me to get the things I want in life, to not give up. When I would run to her house, a 4 mile trek, I would ask for a ride home, she’d say “Well you ran here, you can run back. You can do it”. That kind of encouragement always stayed with me internally and created a voice inside me that pushed me, and pushes me to keep going, and to keep going after the things I really want.

    Family was her number #1 priority, and we should all remember that.

    I thank Michelle Menning for taking such good care of Grandma and caring so much to give up many of the things that we all took for granted. I am grateful that she was able to give Grandma many great last years in the place she wanted to be the most, 7700 S. Cook Rd.

    My heart is with the entire family, Toby, Jason, Todd, Harold, Lois, Bill, Karen, and my Dad.

    I will miss Norma very deeply. She was a wonderful mother-in-law to me and also a wonderful grandmother to John and Steve. Many great memories of her will always be with me.

    All my love and prayers go out to all family members. That they may stay strong through the next several months as they cope with and grieve their loss.
