Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal. May God's peace be with you." Grief is the last act of love we have to give to those we loved. Where there is deep grief, there was great love.. My thoughts and prays are with Norma's family.

Ben and Family, you have our deepest sympathy. Norma was a pillar at New Hope, always faithful and hard working for her church and Christ. We had watched a classic movie a few weeks ago and spoke of Norma in how much she resembled Myrna Loy.
She was a blessing to everyone in her life and church. May God comfort you. We all know that Norma is with the Lord. Blessed Assurance.
Love to you all through Jesus,
Betty & Paul Swinford
