I’m so sorry for ya’lls loss.. Our family Noble many years ago when he installed Direct Tv for us.. my daughter and I loved him instantly.. He would help us here and there with our TVs when we were having issues with our TVS.. He would always give incredible advice to our daughter and he and her would totally pick on me.. I’m sorry I never took Noble up on his invite to his church.. You could tell how much he loved his kids and family...

Again, my whole family is so sadden and heartbroken by Nobles loss..
prayers and hugs
