Janice and Family, we are so sorry about the passing of Norbert. Kathy and I are also sorry we did not come last night. I had a medical procedure that precluded us from coming. Norbert helped me in one of my most significant endeavors - building a home for our family. He was so unselfish with his help and always had a great sense of humor. Please know that we are think about and praying for you.
