I was saddened to hear of Norma’s passing. She made a lasting impression on my heart. Caring for her was a privilege & praying with her was an honor. Leslie, thank you for sharing your Nanny with me. Give Lou & Denise my condolences. Brooke Holcomb,RN~(Ecclesiastes 3:1-8) “To every thing there is a season, & a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, a time to die; a time to plant, a time to reap; a time to kill, & a time to heal; a time to break down, & a time to build up;
A time to weep, a time to laugh; a time to mourn, & a time to dance..”

Norma and I have a long history together. I taught her how to drive their old 53/54 ford she called lulabell. We had good times and some not so good times. We bowled on a Friday night league at Fair lanes bowling alley where she was a good bowler.She was an awesome cook, her lemon supreme cake was a must at family gatherings and her hot dog chili the best.The entire Bradshaw family will miss her because she was one of those people that you never see dying. I love you Norma, rest in peace until the LORD brings us all back together to a joyous reunion.Lou and family we are here for you.

My heart is truly broken. I met Nanny many years ago and before I new it I was part of the family. She was a second Mom away from home . I will miss her funny story telling, her laughter and her passion for life. It was never a dull moment at her house, good food and company. . I will miss her famous vegetable soup that she used to make a special batch just for me. Heaven has gained an angel and one day I will see you see you again. I know you are free of pain and walking those streets of gold. I love you Nanny!
