Noel was my brother-in-law. He had PAD and devopled lung cancer whic was diagnosed in August 2010. He had 1 treatment of chemo which caused a massive heart attack. He died peacefully in his sleep the day after Erle and I saw him. He was surrounded by his loving wife and his son. He had seen all of his children, his sister, Beth Adams, Aunt Ginny Pearson who had all gathered to say their goodbyes. His father, Erle Sr. Was not told of Noel's circumstances, as he was fighting for his life with a brain tumor. Erle Sr. Died 1/11/11 and I am sure he was surprised when he entered Heaven, to see that Noel beat him there!
