    Noble was an ablsolutely lovely man. I met him for the first time in the summer of 2008 and our paths crossed many times over the past couple of years. I felt like I knew him and your family for longer then I acutally have. I work with Kelly and see that she has her father’s gentleness, kind spirit and incredible sense of humor. I wish peace and strength for all of his family during this time and the difficult times to come.
    You were truly blessed to have Noble and he to have all of you.

    Loretta Mikkelsen and Jason Ukrainec
