Norma Cocks was my aunt - mother's sister. Her husband, also an SPHS grad, was Herbert Cocks. I could not have asked for a better aunt and uncle. They were given the very difficult job, in 1953,  of telling an 11 year old boy (me) that his dad had passed away. Many times, I would go to visit Norm, Herb and son, Greg, in their South Pas homes. Aunt Norm taught me how to drive and it was on one of those lessons she earned her first gray hair. We had a mini family reunion at Christmas time in 1993. Even though she was not feeling well, Aunt Norm was adamant about attending. She passed away about a month later. She really was a wonderful person and made my life better for having known her.
