Norbert was probably the best man i have ever known--when i was 14- i felt he was the only person on earth who cared about me-- i had never spoken to him but knew who he was from church- he had heard that i was having some problems and he reached out to me and let me know that he cared and that he was there for me-- years later he could not possibly have known that i was having problems again but he again reached out and let me know again that he cared--he also befriended my husband who needed a friend--i will always remember his generous gift of friendship- i am truly grateful to have known him

I will miss you but I am so thankful for the times we had together. I especially want to thank you for all of your loving prayers and support when we were going through the adoption of our daughter that I was so nervous about.
Please say hello to my Daddy, my angel baby Hailey, and Grandmothers. I know you and my Dad would be wonderful fishing buddies up there. I love you. Glad that you are no longer in pain, nor suffering. You are all healed and new again with Jesus and that is better than anything I can think of.
To those who took care of Grandpa in any capacity, I want to Thank You so very much on behalf of our family for the care, love and compassion you shown. My sincere gratitude is everlasting.
