Dear Jackie: I am saddened to learn of Norbert's passing. May these coming days bring you comfort and peace as we are all thinking of you and praying for you and your family.

Let me come in where you are weeping, friend,
And let me take your hand.
I, who have known a sorrow such as yours,
Can understand.

Let me come in -- I would be very still
Beside you in your grief;
I would not bid you cease your weeping, friend,
Tears can bring relief.

Let me come in -- I would only breathe a prayer,
And hold your hand,
For I have known a sorrow such as yours,
And understand.

In the Jewish religion, we believe that a person dies twice: first when they die and then when people stop saying their name. As long as you speak of Norbert he will live on forever.
