    Nesodden NorwayNorma was a lovely woman. Since we met in 2008, we used to have long chats over the phone. In spite of health problems and the tough life she had had, she was a very positive woman with a great sense of humor. She raised her ten children under primitive and difficult circumstances. And I know the children loved her so much.
