Mr. Falk was one of the nicest people I knew at North. I was fortunate enough to know him and his family outside of North, too. How lucky I am. RIP, Mr. Falk.

Norm and Karen Falk were 2 of the most wonderful people, always a smile on their face and always something positive to say.
I knew them since I was a child - Karen always had a hug to share. God must have needed them as they were gone from earth way too soon.
Toni and Scott, you were very lucky, as I, to have
had such wonderful parents. My parents (still on Pawnee
and attending Calvary when not in AZ) always kept me updated on your parents.
Peace to you both and your families!
