I am so sorry to hear of Norma's passing. She was a dear, sweet lady. I am the daughter of Terrill Rader and the granddaughter of Oscar and Rill Rader. I remember you all coming to visit my grandparents farm many years ago and we went fishing in the pond. It's so sad to lose our precious family members. Prayers for comfort for all of you. My parents and grandparents are buried in Valley Oak, as well.
