It hurts my heart to hear about Norma. Norma was such a gentle soul who would treat you with love and kindness no matter who you were. We met Norma at Guadalupe Elementary School and we were friends to the end. "Well it's never the end it's just good-bye for now my friend until we meet again" Your lasting impression will never be forgotten and that beautiful smile will always be in our hearts. We love you Ms. Norma! Rest in paradise with God and all the Angels.

Our sincere condolences and prayers to Abel, their sons and all the Ybarra Family.

Norma I can't believe you are gone. But I know you are resting and flying high with the Angles. God knew you were tired and has given you eternal life, no more pain, no more tears. You can now praise him with your arms up in the air, Glorifying the Lord on those streets of gold, seeing family you lost when you were here on earth. You will be missed by all, love you my funny always laughing friend.

My deepest condolences Able Sr., your sons and family. God bless you all! You are in my prayers.

We had the honor of knowing Norma during our time with her at Ventura Place. Norma lit up every room she entered. They love she had for her family was expressed each time we visited with her. Norma was always positive and only spoke of others in a positive manner. One thing was certain, after spending even a couple of minutes with Norma you were warmed inside and out by her presence.
Our prayers go out to her friends and family. Norma will forever be missed.

I stood watching as the little ship sailed out to sea. The setting sun tinted her white sails with a golden light and as she disappeared from sight a voice at my side whispered "she is gone" on the farther shore a little band of friends had gathered to watch and wait in happy expectation.

Suddenly they caught sight of a tiny sail and the very moment when my companion had whispered "she is gone" a glad shout went up in joyous welcome "Here she comes!"

Thinking of my family during this difficult time. Know I keep you all in prayer, Sincere Condolences your cousin AJ
