Laughter and love abounded at the weekly Sunday night dinners always ending with her amazing lemon meringue pie. No meal was complete until Norma remembered the jellied salad, forgotten in the fridge. Norma had a fantastic sense of humour and a personal commitment to ensure all those around her were loved.
