  8. To the family of Norma, we grieve with you at Norma’s passing but celebrate that she is now in the presence of the Savior. Norma and her family have been such a wonderful blessing to our mother, Ruth Garringer, and our late father, Richard. Whenever the “Kentucky Cousins” came for a visit, it was always a joyful, exciting time. A few months ago we were able to put Norma and my mom together on a telephone call and even though our mom now has Alzheimer’s, for nearly 20 minutes they laughed and remembered so many wonderful moments together. We are praying for you during these days and those to come. May God’s presence and peace be yours in every abundance. Jim Garringer and Jane (Garringer) Farren.
