Condolences & Memories (1 entries)
I was deeply saddened to find Norrie's name in the obituaries. I met her at school over 50 years ago when we were children. My parents and I moved back to Europe, but we had remained friends and were in touch all along over the years. Last time we spoke on the phone was well a year ago. I was worried about her after trying to call and the answering machine would first tell me to leave a message and then say that that was not possible because it was full, no more capacity. My sincerest condolences to Norrie's family. I wish I would have been able to say goodbye. Rest in peace Norrie! Anne. - Posted by: Annemarie Utzeri (friend) on: Mar 23, 2016
