Not sure what to say?

Sorry for your loss of Mr. Rigali. May the hope that was taught by our Lord Jesus bring you comfort. In harmony with the Lords Prayer , a hope here on the earth. May you desire to learn more.

Norb was a dear friend of my late husband, Bob Braus, when I first met them both in 1967 at Loyola U. in Los Angeles. His brilliant mind and wonderful wit were matched by deep commitment to his calling and warmth and loyalty as a friend. I last saw him in 2011 shortly before my husband died and he was transferred to Los Gatos. My condolences to all his bereaved family and friends.

The Sisters of St Joseph of Carondelet send our prayers and condolences to the Rigali family. Charlotte CSJ was one of our members. May Norbert rest in the loving hands of God
