In Loving Memory of Our Mom Grandmother and Great Grandmother Jimmie Dean Normand

In Loving Memory of Our Mom Grandmother and Great Grandmother Jimmie Dean Normand

I didn’t want to write the original obituary because there was nothing original about my momma. She live her life to the fullest before her illness took over, and even then her spirit and spunk would over run Alzheimer’s. She live a good life, raising us kids, helping family with their kids, and opening her home to a lot of unwanted animals.

At times, my mom had little to give as far as money or material things, but she never altered to open her home up to those in need whether you had 2 legs or 4. Her love was never ending.

My heart is breaking and my mind is overwhelmed, but I know she is with our Heavenly Father, and that’s all the peace I can find for now. My mom won in the end, not her illness. She is with her sons, her mom, her sister and my daddy.

Look down on us Momma every now and then and give us a sign when we falter, you are the stone that kept us together. Until I see you again, I love you, but you already know that.
