  1. Wilson,
    I am so sorry to hear about Ginger. She was a precious lady
    & I know y’all will all miss her.

  2. I will raise the family in prayer for comfort at this difficult time.

  3. Ginger blessed so many of us with her sweet smile and soft words of encouragement. All three of our children had “Mrs. Norris” in school and loved her dearly. I will treasure our long time friendship which endured even in the times we didn’t see each other very often. The conversation was always there.

    We are holding you all in our prayers and thoughts during this time.

  4. Wilson, Clay and Dana,

    I am very sorry to hear about the loss of Mrs. Norris. She was the sweetest person and was always super nice to me when I came over to the house to hang out with Dana. My brother actually had her three different times as a teacher. He said she used to follow him. I know that you all treasure her memory and rest easy knowing that one day you’ll get to see her again. I send my love to all of you.
    With Love, Carla

  5. We hold your family in our prayers – May you fall upon the alter of faith and God’s grace surround you. Prayers for strength and comfort.

  6. Mrs Norris was always kind and caring. Prayers for her family.

    I was so sorry to hear about Ginger. Wilson, you both were so kind to Gary and I when I became one of the new agents in the Lufkin group. Please know that I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time and the days ahead.

  8. Dear Wilson and family,
    Please accept my deepest sympathy during this difficult time. Ginger was not only a teaching buddy but also a dear friend. I thank God our paths crossed. I pray precious memories of Ginger help ease the emotional pain you all are experiencing.

    I’m sorry I wasn’t able to attend her funeral. I’m out of town, but my thoughts are with you all.
