I knew Norma for 50 + years. Jenneth and I have been friends for all those years. I loved going to their home bc her family was so much fun. Norma always made me laugh. I remember her doing a belly dance for me in a legit costume and all! She was taking classes. I thought she was such a cool mom. Norma was always smiling. Only a few weeks ago her and Jenneth stopped by my mom's. We had the best afternoon together. My mom made a big meal and we did a lot of laughing that day. I will miss her so much. She was part of our family. Rest well Norma. See you on the other side. ♥️Sandra
