  • So sorry about your loss. I remember coming to your house (Ron) when I was a teen. I was dating Joe Sherman. Had lots of fun with your mom. She had a good sense of humor.

  • So sorry for your loss of a wonderful Mother. An a special Aunt to me. We had many good times when I lived them for a while and got out on my own. Old the laughs I had. One time while I was at their home. Aunt Nora had me to fry potato’s. At that time I had not done much cooking. I kept lifting the lid and stiring them. Aunt Nora said: if I didn’t leave them alone they would never get done. That was just one of the many lessons I learn from her. That is one of many I could tell. Love you guys a lot Cindy Ferrell

  • Patty & Ron, I wish to express my deepest sympathy for the loss of your Mother. Aunt Nora & Uncle Woody were special people. I would love it when we would go to Grandma & Grandpa Sharp’s house for Christmas, so many loving people you could not move. I used to get so excited when they would come to Louisville, KY for a visit with parents Harry & Grace Sharp. Aunt Nora was always so funny & loving. May your memories bring you comfort and help you to know others care deeply and are remembering you with special thoughts. She was a treasure we hold dear. I will spend time in God’s prayer room today to give your family strength during this difficult time. Hugs, Nancy

  • So sorry to hear of Nora’s passing. I worked with her at Arundale. It was the first factory job I ever worked and Nora helped me make it through. She was a great coworker and am so glad to have known her. My husband Sam had work with her, he was a stock boy, some years before and remembers her fondly also. May she rest in peace.
