To the Adams Family; My thoughts and prayers will be with all of you at this time of loss. Nubby and I spent many hunting seasons on Kepler Road with many fond memories of hunts and hunting stories. We will all miss him!

Norby (as we called him) will be missed. You have my sympathy. May he rest in peace. I got to know Norby working the church fish fry where he always whistled a tune. He was a hard working, nice man. The family will be in our thoughts and prayers.

Dear Mitzi,

Tony and I both are so sad to hear about Norbert's passing. You both were the best neighbors anyone could ask for and Norbert was always helpful and kind to us and always greeted us with a smile and a story. I remember the time we were in the NICU with Euell and returned home to find that Norbert had mowed our grass for us while we were away. We always felt like family living next to you. You will be in our thoughts and prayers. We will plan to make a visit soon, dear friend.

Love, Leslie and Tony Jellen, Emily, Euell, and Kennie
