Doug - So sorry to hear of the passing of your mom. Please extend our sympathies to your wife, children, sisters & their families, and your uncle & aunts. It's hard to lose loved ones but you can be thankful for all the love and memories that will forever be in your heart and mind....until you meet again on the other side. Take comfort in knowing she is now young, happy, pain-free and with your dad. She will love and guide you always, forever in your heart. Love you Doug.

Though I know that this is a difficult time for you, my hope is that you will be comforted from God's inspired word the Bible. John 5:28,29 and Revelation 21: 3,4 gives hope of a future resurrection and the complete elimination of death, pain and mourning. Under Jesus' kingdom rule we have this and much more to look forward to. Please accept my deepest condolences.

Always a great lady we loved Norma but so did everybody. Thoughts and prayers from us to you.

Norma Jean was always in my life and always the same wonderful person! I will miss her very much as I still miss her mother Gladys. This family spells Lyons to me and why I wanted to come here! Good bye Norma Jean I loved you very much!

Our hearts and prayers are with you. Norma Jean was a pillar of strength, love and compassion for her family. She also reflected these same wonderful traits for her church, community and friends. We loved her sense of humor and rich laugh. She had a rich love for music, both as a contributor and as a listener. She also was devoted to helping others, whether they were loved ones and friends, or strangers from other countries needing help from the church. She was an inspiration to family and all who knew her. She will be greatly missed, but her spirit will be remembered for many years to come. Condolences to her loved ones, Sheila and Dave
