    so much to all who were involved in this little anniversary piece on my dear friend Noel – one of our family chaplains, along with Colin, and lifelong friend.

    Noel and I shared a tiny ‘cell’ at Sassafras…..

    There many wonderful times over the years – baptisms, weddings, funerals….and joyous visits.

    I miss him very much.
