Thinking of you with the loss of your mother. May all of your wonderful memories help you through the difficult days ahead.
Sorry for your loss. We worked with her for many years at Snap On & she was very special.
Rest in Peace Aunt Norma! Condolences to my cousins as you grieve the loss of your wonderful mother.
To the Bormann's, thoughts and prayers from Sara and I. So many great memories of this family. Funny but was "driving through" Whittemore the other day on Google Maps and came upon the yellow house and paused there for a bit. Maybe not coincidental that I received this news today. Just had to smile. What a great place to grow up in.
Thanks, Jerry and Norma, for everything.
Norma was a very caring good friend to my parents,another Whittemore Mom,thoughts and prayers to you all Trudy Betts
