My sympathy to George and the family. Norma Jean was a dear friend to my late Aunt Virginia Eswine, and then to me, immediately after my Aunt passed and whenever I came to Shawneetown to work on the estate. Norma Jean made sure she checked in on me, that I had something in the house to eat, and that I knew when and where church was on Sat/Sun. She carried me to church with her more than once! I loved sitting on the back porch at her house. Rest in Peace dear lady. You have earned your heavenly reward many times over. Sandy Parker Bloomington, IL
