Noah was a wonderful art student and one of the nicest boys at Glengary . I'm so sorry for your loss.

It’s still hard to believe that Noah is no longer with us. It is truly an unfair tragedy to lose such a loving, hilarious, kind soul way too soon. Watching my sister and Nathan become parents has been one of the highlights of my life. I knew they would be the best parents but they by far exceeded my expectations and continue to do so. The love of the Grow family is an untouchable bond and I hope you guys do not lose sight of that while going through this unimaginable time. Noah would want nothing but all of you to be happy, I know that seems impossible right now. I will forever miss his “Aunt Renee, Aunt Renee, Aunt Renee!” Noah will be forever missed and remain in my heart forever as I know he will in many others.

Noah was one of the sweetest kids and kindest friends to my daughter when we lived by the Grow family. I have so many fond memories of Olivia and Noah playing together. We will keep your family in our thoughts and prayers during this time. ♥️

Noah was one of the most nicest persons I’ve ever met. Noah and I were in band together, and we talked and played video games almost everyday. I am extremely shocked and sad, because I talked to Noah the day before he left for vacation. I remember all the fun times we had on the game. Noah was so kind and nice, that he would play with the lonely kid no matter how he/she treated him.
Noah, I will miss you dearly my friend!!! May you Rest In Peace.

I am not know to your family. I live in Upper Michigan. I prayed constantly for your young man as I heard immediately of the circumstances. My prayers did not fall upon deaf ears. Our God holds your young man in His arms now and offers you His Love, comfort and peace. Please lean on Him at this tragic time. Many in my area have prayed; we are close-knit. I don’t want to get lengthy..... my sympathy for all extremely from my heart 🙏🏼🙏🏼

Noah was one of the most thoughtful and caring boys one could ever meet. He was on the drum team, and he was very helpful setting up and taking down drums. You could count on Noah. I so enjoyed teaching music to him. The world could use more people like Noah, not less. Our hearts break for your family.

Though I left elementary school. I still couldn’t seem to forgot Noah’s name. Though I never really got the chance to befriend Noah.. But I could never forget the smile he always had on his face. The twinkle in his eye always inspired others to be just as optimistic... I remember when I first started a video game, I joined Noah and some other friends. He was such a goof. He will always be in our hearts..

What a beautiful boy. All of our hearts are breaking for your family. I remember Noah's great grandpa so proudly telling me of the new baby in the family, "his name is NOAH". So proud.
There are no words to ease your pain but just know we are all praying God will give you the strength to get through this.
May God bless you all.
