Dear Fay, Chris, Lance, and all members of Noble's family.
I did not know until yesterday that Noble has passed away. I am now incapacitated with arthritis, but I just wanted to
let you know how much Noble meant to me and my late parents. I remember him as a kind, caring man who loved his
family and his precious animals. The canned goods that he brought to our house were always keenly anticipated and
deeply appreciated. Noble served as a pallbearer at both my parents' funerals. He and his dear wife, Ella Mae, were so
close as to be considered members of our immediate family. He was loved and will be greatly missed.
