Little Noah is now giving joy to those in heaven and receiving an eternal reward after so much suffering. Now he is with Pope John Paul II, to whom we prayed often for Noah and saw together with the De Iulio family at Denver. To all the family I assure my prayers and love.

Krista, Damian, Vincent and Catharine
My prayers and thoughts go out to you and all those who knew and loved Noah. The Bible says in James: "Life is like a vapor, it appears for alittle while and then it vanishes away." Noah was a messenger from God (an angel) to the Papish family and all who had a chance to know him or pray for him! While we were praying for "Hope," she came in the form of a little girl and Noah was called home. May God heal your broken hearts and give you a new Joy!
-- Gary Avila
Dear Cathy and the Papish Family, Our thoughts and prayers will be with you during this difficult time. God has a new Little Angel in Heaven. May the Lords peace be with you Fondly,

Dear family, as a friend of Stephanie Quigley's I have heard much news about Noah over the past 2 1/2 years. I am so deeply saddened that your precious boy has passed and send you my most heartfelt prayers. You and he have many true friends; I hope they will be of comfort to you in these most difficult times. God bless.
-- Cori Alston
Krista, Damian, Joe & Lisa you have our sincere sympathy. Although we didn't get to know Noah, we know how much love your entire family gave. Love is the greates gift we can give. Noah is now experiencing pure love in the arms of Jesus. You are all in our prayers.
