You were the best sister-in-law. You loved all of your family. You loved Joe and you were the best mother to Brandi. Dee and Emily were blessed to have you as a grandmoher. You loved the Lord and served Him Well. You've already heard it said by Jesus, but I also want to say "Well done thy good and faithful servant." Be looking for us one day.
Norene was one of the finest people I've ever known. She had an exemplorary faith in Christ and she was a true friend. Norene will be sorely missed. May God bless Joe and the family.
