Dear Gilmour family, I am sorry to hear of Norma´s passing. It is always hard to lose a parent. Although we have not been in contact for decades, I know she had a most generous and kind soul: all those years ago around the time of my dad's death she helped make sure I had somewhere to go at lunchtime, to your place David, or elsewhere. I will always remember those times thanks in part to her.

Wendy Gilman Gruber - 24 days ago

To the entire Gilmour family, My heartfelt condolences to all of you for the passing of Norma. My heart is broken that she is no longer with us, and I wish you all strength in the days and weeks ahead as you continue your lives without her. To Howie....how blessed you were to have had 66 wonderful years to share your life with the most wonderful, caring and loving woman. To Hal, David and Allan....your mom was one of my favorite people! As you know, the friendship that our mothers shared for over 60 years was the foundation for the wonderful memories I have from my childhood. As we all grew up and started our own families, your mom continued to be such a big part of my life. I will deeply miss our conversations to catch up every few months, and I will especially miss her laughter, positive attitude, and stories about my mother that she would continue to tell me, as recently as this past December. Your mom was a beautiful woman, inside and out, and I hope those of us who were blessed with having had her in our lives will cherish the memories of her and smile when we think about her fabulous laugh, amazing smile, and wonderful disposition. May she rest in peace. With love, Wendy

Der Howie, Allan, Hal, David and family: My heart is broken. There are no words for how much I loved Norma. She was the kindest, most caring person who always found the good in everyone. Never judgmental and always smiling. From the moment she met Sam and Katie, she made them feel happy and loved. They always thought of Norma as their "special aunty In Palm Desert", they could not wait to see her. Growing up on Glencairn Ave., we sure hit the jackpot having you as neighbors. I wish we could be there with you at this time to share stories and laugh. I sit here fondly thinking of all the memories we shared together. Norma will always be one of my all time favorite, favorite people. I will miss her and think of her often with a smile on my face. She was sunshine. Daniel, Sam and Katie share in sending you a warm hug. We love you all. xxx Pammy
