Christy, my deepest sympathy in your loss of Noah. No words can ease your pain at this time, but know how much we all care and grieve with you. Noah made such an impression on me in the short time I've had the privilege of knowing him. He was such a kind, considerate and thoughtful young man. He always had an amazing smile every time we would see each other. Noah was definitely one of my favorite kids on the summer work program this year! Lean on God for strength in the days ahead.
