Mrs. Randall held a special place in my heart and in the hearts of all who knew her. Always with a smile, a kind word, and warm hug. I have very fond memories of the Randall children singing in the choir together and of all the theatrical performances by all members of her family. What a wonderful job Mrs. Randall with her husband in raising all those great kids! After the kids flew the nest, you could always see her singing in the choir, among all the other activities. My sincere condolences to her great family that carries on her beautiful legacy.

I loved Norma. We knew each other for quite a few years - bowled in the same league and sang in the same community chorus. Norma was a very sweet, loving lady and I will miss her.
