Farewell to our lovely lady Norma
I wish only the best for you on your new journey
You will be missed by all who knew you
And remembered as a very special person
Your family will miss you beyond measured
as you were a wonderful mum, the very best.
You led a truly exemplary life on earth
And now you deserve your just rewards in heaven
May God Bless You
On earth one gentle soul less
In Heaven, one angel more

Thinking of you and your family,
With Love, Brenda

Message for Norma & Frances:

Hope you find the following verses comforting and hope everthing goes well tomorrow. I’ll be thinking of you all.

With Love, Brenda

What Can You Say
What Can You Say - A Non Religious Funeral Reading
What can you say
To someone who has always been one of
The most essential parts of your world;
Someone who took you by the hand
When you were little
And helped to show the way.
What do you say to someone
Who stood by to help you grow,
Providing love, strength, and support
So you could become the person
You are today?
What can you say to let her know
That she's the best there is,
And that you hope you've inherited
Some of her wisdom and her strength?
What words would you say
If you ever got the chance?
Maybe you just say,
I love you Mum,
and hope she understands

How do We Let A Mother Go

How do we let a mother go?
How do we say "I'm ready now to go on without you"?
How can we ever have a clue of what that really means?
And of a sudden the moment is upon us, and there's no turning back.
And then we know what grief is,... and guilt and love and things undone.
Try to prepare and we will fail in some way, be it subtle or looming....
But there is peace too. peace and acceptance and overwhelming love that we maybe weren't aware of. waves and waves of conflicting emotion,
And laughter too, and memories we hadn't bothered lately to recall come flooding back in shared company.. and it's all about you mum...and there's gratitude.. so much of that, that we had you, such a wonderful mother...Bright and shining, nobody's fool,
Smart, and kind, and funny and loving..
A part of you has passed away, but much is carried everyday within us, and will as long as we are here.
This may be a final tribute,
A day to celebrate your life and say goodbyes;
But it's not final.
Every day I'll celebrate in some way, just by the virtue of how you shaped my life,
The absolute and incredible fortune that I knew you.

My childhood memories are all about The Lil with Norma and Bee, Norma was the most amazing lady- I remember running away from home with my rack sac full of shoes to be with Norma and Frankie- and then Norma calling my Mum saying “she’s here Ange” that lasted a few hours; I was 6 years old.
I’m heartbroken for your family and I send all my love always x My dad said “she was a diamond” and we all know that anyway xxx
RIP Norma- back in the arms of beloved Frank x

Dad and I was at Honor Oak 2:30 yesterday - what’s he like - Norma probably laughing down on us x
