Not sure what to say?


I recall a premonition that he would not be with us much longer. I asked a couple of the Brothers that were frequent visitors on the show about what will be done to carry on his work. They responded that it was being looked into. His dream was one of a kind. I told him one time that maybe a part of the show should applaud our successes. I prayed who ever was given the assignment (by God) to follow in his footsteps would present the problems along with solutions. Truly prayers are answered....

My condolences to the Noble family.
America has lost a distinguished scholar, communicator, journalist, and humanist. I loved watching Like It Is on ABC-7 and I've learned so much African and African American history and the conditions and situations that have negative impact to the black community and yet there is hope, still. God bless you, Gil. You will be missed.

Mr. Noble conducted an excellent interview of Bob Marley, the best I've seen. A smooth, suave, and highly intelligent man, who brought people closer to the truth.

To the Noble family. I grew up with you in Montclair, NJ many years ago. I visited your home as a friend of the twins. I fondly remember the family and how Ms. Noble gave me my first introduction to Island living and Kingston Town. Although I've moved on in life, I remember how kind Mr. Noble was to me. I never forgot the family. I pray the entire family is coping with their loss and I will continue to pray for God's peace to be with you. Kim Jackson Ovesen

Curtis Cole You are Missed

Gil should be respected and remembered in reverence since my twenty dollars worth of college registration taught me to deeply appreciate the results of his career and the excellence of his reporting. He will live on and be difficult to replace

Thank you very much Mr.Noble for the years of knowledge every week, your courage, your integrity, perserverence, and the truth. I hope to put the knowledge gained from you and your guests to good use for the black community. You are missed terribly. You have my utmost respect and my deepest sympathy to your loved ones. Rest in peace knowing you have fulfilled your purpose and that you live on in everyone you've touched. God bless you.

R.I.P. You will truly be miss...
