Very sad to hear of Norma's passing. I met Norma around 2012 when I was introduced to her by Mitch's friend, Harry Swindler. We met at Villa's over Nachos and margaritas.
We enjoyed many fun times with her and Mitch at The Lourie Center dancing to the oldies by the Heart and Soul band. Norma always brought Chicken strips from Hardees or home made ham sandwiches. We also enjoyed dinners at restaurants, barbecuing at
the SCE&G park and visiting their lake house.
She will be missed. Rest in Peace dear friend.

What a strong and inspirational lady! Norma always viewed life optimistically, but never more than when she received a dire medical diagnosis. She continued living every day to the fullest - talk about the power of positive thinking!!! The best years of our uncle Odell's life were those spent with her and the rest of our family was privileged to come along for the ride. We have so many wonderful memories of times we shared!!! She leaves behind a huge void for all of us blessed to have known her.

With deep and sincere sympathy,
Jim and Rae Anne Hamp
