May Norma Rest In Peace. My condolences to her family and the Angulo family.
Our grandfathers were brothers, our fathers were 1st cousins and we were on down the line from there. It was always fun and funny when we were in high school how many Angulo cousins there were

Norma, was a kind and loving classmate of mine at S.M. Oh how I envied those dimples. Rest in peace Norma.
I am so sorry for your loss Preciado Family. Your mom was the kindest, sweetest person and I truly enjoyed working with her at Maricopa County. She proudly talked about you all quite often. Always remember that she loved you all so dearly. God bless you all in this most difficult time and always. Rest in peace sweet Norma. God has gained a beautiful angel.
Thoughts & prayers for strength & peace. Your mom left a great legacy and was a positive example for all who met her. Heaven is a better place now that she’s home.
