I owe my love of swimming to you.
Thank you and God bless.

Ethel Norton was a great lady and long time friend. Nearly 60 years ago Ethel and I won the T.A.A.F. mixed doubles in Galveston TX. I have the trophy with both our names on it. She will be missed by all who were privileged to know her.

Many thanks to a wonderful lady! My childhood memories are full of summers spent taking swimming lessons with Miss Norton at the San Antonio Country Club, and later, when she gave me my first job giving swim lessons to the 3-year-olds. Every time I swim, her voice rings in my ears saying "straight legs and point your toes". She was an icon of the SACC and I was privileged to be one of her students. Her encouragement, swim-cap and tickle water will be greatly missed... God bless.

You and Suzanne are in my thoughts and prayers. I think Ethel was fortunate to have had two such devoted and loving nieces.
