To the Noland family: Words alone cannot express my sympathy regarding the untimely death of your beloved husband, father, and friend. His time with us was far too short. He will be sorely missed by all who loved and knew him. No doubt the outpouring of sympathy you have received since his parting has been of some consolation. Hopefully it will serve as a reminder to you of how well-loved and liked he was. I hope that you and your family will find peace and comfort in knowing that his suffering is over and that his just rewards await him. May God bless you and your wonderful family. Sincerely Nate Beam
