Sherry, Bob and Rick...I was so sadden to hear about your mom. Please accept my deepest sympathy. I have so many memories of your mom and dad and of all of you through our growing up years living next door to each other in Jewett City. Having your family as neighbors, Sherry as my best childhood friend and your home as my second home are very special memories to me. During this difficult time I am praying you find comfort in knowing she is in a better place and will forever be watching over you. Your mom was such a wonderful and kind woman and she will be so missed, not only by you, but by so many of us who had the pleasure of knowing her. My prayers are with you all. Love, Suzanne

Sherry bob and rick. Norma was my best gift when as a young mother we moved to griswold to start our life. She was such a strong role model for me and Gary and her ability to recognize what is important in life. Family family family. Her love of family was unwavering. Watching her kids play their games and then later her grandchildren. I am sure she is still going to be watching over all of you and will be with you at every game. Please accept our long distance hugs and love.
