Norita Lee Made Us Smile

Dear Source:
I was saddened to learn today of the passing of Norita Lee, a wonderful colleague and human being. I enjoyed reading the ever-so-true nice comments in The Source about Norita and her contributions to the Ad Club, the advertising community and the community at large. I want to add my tribute to Norita. What I recall is her genuine kindness towards and interest in her friends and colleagues. You couldn't have a conversation with Norita where she wasn't fully engaged and engaging, and interested in hearing what you had to say. It was always a pleasure to run into Norita at an Ad Club meeting or other function…you knew the conversation was always going to be interesting and fun.
Not a day goes by that I don't read the St. Thomas Source and miss my friends in the Virgin Islands. Today is especially a sad day. But through the sadness come many fond memories and stories. Norita made us smile, and I feel blessed to have had the honor of knowing her.
My condolences to Bruce and to her family, friends and our colleagues in the Virgin Islands advertising community.
Dennis P. Grant
