I'm sorry to hear of the fate of Norbert Palea.
I was visiting Kalaupapa in 1998 with a mainland Congregational Church group that built a bell tower for the Kanaana Hou Church bell as well as some picnic tables and made curtains for their social hall. The movie on Father Damien was being filmed at the time. Norbert was very kind to our four teenagers and let them play pool during slack times. Norbert appeared in the movie as did Kenso, Catherine and Sarah. I cherish the time I spent in Kalaupapa (maybe 10 days or less)and feel a special connection every time I watch the movie.
