We, Nora's children and grandchildren, rise up and call her blessed! There has never been, nor will there ever be, a more devoted mother and grandmother and we have been loved beyond measure with her in our life. We know she is in the arms of our Lord Jesus and that she is reunited with her loved ones. She loved each of us with all her heart, she was our rock, our anchor and our angel on this earth. May we all remember her as God's example of love. We pray God give each of us, her children and grandchildren a measure of God given faith and plant a seed of righteousness and hunger for the ways of our Lord Jesus in each of our hearts. May we seek our heavenly Father and run the race as instructed in the Word of God, so we can meet her in the heavenlies one day, for this life is but a vapor. We regret that we are unable to share our Celebration of Nora's life with the public. We know she had many people that love her and want to pay their respects, but due to the pandemic situation and the safety of our family members, we are restricting Nora's Celebration of Life to a Private Family Graveside service. Bro. Mike Muse will be officiating.
