I met Norma through Bosque Farms Christian Academy where I taught her daughter Ally in Kindergarten through 3rd grade. We became friend immediately and did many things together. I so loved her faith in God and how strong she was. I will miss her dearly. Love you Rick and Ally and pray for you daily.
