My deepest sympathy on the loss of your mother, Maureen.

Colleen, our sympathies and deepest regrets go out to you and your family at this difficult time. We hope it brings comfort to know your Mom is in heaven with your Dad and you can look forward to a grand reunion one day. You are in our prayers.

I want to extend my deep sympathy for the loss of your mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. I am the oldest child of Bill and Marguerite Ross Norman. They have both passed away now so I know the pain associated with your loss. Marguerite often told me how much she enjoyed a trip she and Maureen took years ago to see my sister Patti who was living out near Seattle. As it turned out, one of my high school classmates worked for the airline they traveled on and he recognized my Mom. He told them it was too long a flight to sit in coach, so he upgraded both of them to First Class. They both felt like celebrities. I will not be able to attend the service but you will be in my thoughts and prayers. Margaret (Peg) Tipple
