Dear Sherri and Families,
I am so sorry to read your Dad's obit. in the paper. I didn't realize that "Noble" was you Dad, he always greeted me at the grocery story with such a nice smile. All the years you and I worked together, at Johnny B's, was a great experience, and a wonderful friendship. Please know that you and the families are in our prayers.

Our family is saddened that we missed the service for Noble. Many fond memories
remain in our hearts and we thank him for those. What a kind and gracious gentleman.
It is comforting to know he is safe in the presence of the Lord.
Wanda & family
