I learned today that my friend John Noack left this earth last week. I met John a while back when I delivered block for his new home in Payson. From then on, we would wave to each other whenever we passed on the highway.
Something very serious happened last year that affected John, his family and many others who John didn't know.
John called me a few months ago because I had stopped by and left a note for him. John told me that he had accepted the Lord into his life and that he was trying to hang in there. I believe that John decided to go to the source to find the forgiveness that he couldn't find while he was here.
For all of us who love you, John, we'll miss you.
