I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Aunt Norma. All the Rusk siblings are now reunited. I have so many memories when I was young spending the night at Aunt Norma's And playing Monopoly with my cool older cousins. Aunt Norma was always interested in what we were doing and really listened to our answers. She was a special lady and I am proud she was my Aunt. Love to the family! Patty Rusk Durant
