Noel and I served together in Korea in Company B as Lieutenants during 1962. I remember we were both interested in photography. I have a black and white 8x10 of myself that Noel took and developed. One time, years ago, I was watching the news and saw Noel being the spokesperson for Colonial after there was a pipeline accident. In the last few years we have kept in touch via Email and Facebook. I was blessed to have the intelligent and caring Noel L. Griese as a friend for over fifty years.
Noel was a dear friend of mine in college, He was oh-so smart and gloriously kind. Several years ago, we renewed our friendship. Except for adding a few pounds, he had not changed. A magnificent person and I grieve his loss
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
Dr. Griese was one of my professors at the University of Georgia in the 70's. The class was enriched by his expertise and sharing his adventures in journalism and life. May he rest in peace.
My condolences. Please draw comfort from the love of family and friends and cherish the fond memories that you hold for years to come. Ps 27:1, 5, 10
