Rest, Mom- You've worked too hard all your life <3 At last is your time for peace. A much better life (after this one) has been waiting for you. I miss you something terrible :-( I guess, my condolence is in your reward, and in your peace. But it doesn't stop me from being really sad that you're gone. <33
I will seriously miss Nora. We were good friends and planned a lunch date when she returned to Nampa. My prayers are with each and everyone. Laughter was a gift we shared. Peace be with you
To the family of Nora Gahley,
My name is Morgan, I'm 18 years old and I am a waitress at Idle Isle Cafe. Recently in the past few months I had the pleasure of serving Nora and she was always so cheerful and sweet to talk to. I really enjoyed her company and it was the highlight of my shift to talk to Nora even if I wasn't the one to serve her. Nora was so sweet, she was always so interested in what was going on in my life and we would indulge in the silly things that we noticed in life. I'm very sorry for your loss and even though I couldn't attend the services, I'm sure they were very beautiful.
