    Mary Ann and I experienced a lot fun times and serious times. She was a good, kind, loving lady who loved her Norm and adored her girls. It was a sad day when they left South Carolina, but now God’s plan was a wise one. They needed to be with the girs. I will miss you, I love you and thanks for all the memories that mean the world to me.
