Such a loving soul, so humble, and yet so giving. I loved seeing him with different members of his family at Sunday Mass. He and Mary raised a beautiful family. God bless you all.

Iโ€™m so sorry for you loss. I met Norbert at Sacred Heart of Mary. He was the kindest man. He always took the time to talk with me after Mass. I know from our talks how much he loved his kids, and his grandkids.
I will miss you friend.

Norb and Mary were my across-the-street neighbors for 20 years. They were the best neighbors anyone could ever have had. I always enjoyed all their family coming to their home to visit as well. I have been very blessed all the years by knowing this family.
