So very sorry for your loss.


We are so sad to hear of Norma's passing. Autumn was excited to meet her. We will think of her whenever Autumn is swimming, because she will learn to swim in a gift from Norma. I will think of her whenever I learn a new anishinaabemowin word, something I've been trying to do and she always tried to help me with finding resources. We can't be at the funeral because the drive is a little bit too much for a 2 month old, but we will take some moments on that day to remember just how kind and special Norma was.

-Gillian Cluroe and baby Autumn

Often growing up we attach ourselves to other families they are like second parents, moms and dads. Norma and Ralph were like that to me. I had a second set of siblings and a second home that was safe and welcoming. Norma, connecting back with you and family these past years will be experiences I will cherish for the rest of my life.
