    Heaven sure did get a good one. Words cannot even express just how much my life was enriched because of Norman (Moshe). He made me want to be better just by merely being in his presence. He was loved and will be missed by so many. I never not once heard a bad word about Norman. He was my heart... miss u already my friend. When you spoke, we listened. You helped countless people. Those sure are some lucky people there with you at the big table in the sky. Love always..
