Dearest Family
All of the members of the American Legion from across this great state join me in extending condolences on the passing of your dear Mr. Noah. May the God of ALL COMFORTS now go to work to heal your hearts as you travel forward on a grief journey for a ways. Someone wrote, "Healing comes through story." May God send 10,000 stories to be shared with the world for as long as you want. Share the "good stories, the bad stories, and the silly and sad stories." May He surround you by people who will listen carefully. I have come to believe that it takes 10,000 hugs to figure out a grief journey. Travel well and know that we are so grateful for the service of a faithful sailor and are proud to honor him today. May our gracious and loving God walk with you hand in hand and lift your spirits and bring the joy to fill your hearts.

My condolences to the Family. I moved to Chattanooga in 1978 to work for TVA. Mr. Oliver was one of the first to welcome me and offer to help in anyway, both on and off the job. His kindness and empathy will never be forgotten.

Noah was widely respected by many people at many places including the Mountain City Club. If there is ever a sequel to the movie, "Driving Miss Daisy" he would have been the perfect character of Hope(Morgan Freeman) for the kind way he treated my aunt, Betty Smith. Thank you, Noah.
