To Tammy and Kent and the rest of the family:
I am truly sorry that Norene had to leave us so soon. She still had a lot of trips to the Casino to make and there were still many laughs in her. She loved her friends and would have gone on forever with any of them, if her inner body hadn't told her that time was up.
Treasure each other - because, we don't know how long we will have each other.
Love and Hugs to the entire family, Sandra Lemmon Orton
