To Uncle Dick, Ricky, Linda, Jimmy, Michael, Lisa, Charlie, Susan and Kevin,

I want to offer our deepest sympathy in this time of mourning. I still remember the summers you guys would travel up to our home in Nazareth PA. Your family was very, energetic, outgoing and freindly. We used to really get along great and I miss those days. We really need to get together like old times.

God Bless you all and know that there is a special place for Aunt Mimi in Heaven.

Your Cousin greg, Veronica and the rest of the Noll family.
