Our family circle is smaller now, but heaven is brighter because of the arrival of my Aunt Norma.
NORMA GRACE McGUIRE
May 9, 1923 – January 8, 2015
She was a remarkable woman. I’ve posted about her and some of her achievements before…
- when she began creating her unique ‘treasure albums‘,
- when she embarked on a special writing project,
- when she published her book of children’s stories at the age of 89.
The month after her husband died, she established a Flickr account, and over the past ten years she has posted over 3000 images and developed precious cyber friendships in many countries around the world. When the publication of her book became a possibility three years ago, she undertook blogging. Today I posted a last message for her at ‘Noni Grace: Random Thoughts and Reminiscing‘, and her son also posted an announcement on her Flickr page, Norma/Nonie Vogue.
We’re richer for her presence in our lives; we’re saddened by the loss; we’re comforted by wonderful memories of her strength, her life and her faith.
“Then the way you live
will always honour and please the Lord,
and your lives will produce every kind of good fruit.
All the while, you will grow
as you learn to know God better and better.”
[Colossians 1:10, NLT]
“For he loves us with unfailing love;
the Lord’s faithfulness endures forever.
Praise the Lord!”
[Psalm 117:2, NLT]
