We are so sorry to hear of Norma's passing. She will be greatly missed by us here at The Color Center, and even more so at The Library. She was a wonderful lady.
Norma always offered assistance and gave kindness and consideration without being asked while doing her work. I will miss her bright smile and kind heart. I'm so glad I had a chance to meet her thru the Library.
