Thank you Noel; for all of the countless smiles you've given me, for all of the wonderful heartfelt conversations we've had, for your dedication to the job and for the remarkable pride you've shown for your daughters. Thank you for trusting me enough to let me know you. Thank you for being my friend. I will never forget your laugh or the look in your eyes when we tease Larry. I will carry those wonderful memories with me until we meet again.

Dear Romero Family my deepest of sympathy. Knowing Noel, as I have, it is truly hard to comprehend his passing. Noel and I always seemed to meet randomly (never enough) and when we did see each other he always had a big smile. He would say to me "What up Cuz". Then we would share many laughs and catch up with life. We would talk about everything from missing our parents (all have passed and his parents were my God Parents), our siblings and of course our children. We would laugh about all the crazy nights we spend at dance clubs and just hanging out. We would share all those "you remember when stories". I truly will miss him. I do only wish I could be there and pay my final respect to a wonder person / family. It really hurts my heart not to be able to support the family but I'm currently working in China. Maico, Robert, Gilbert and Richard I wish you all the best. Gabriella and Maraiyah your father was wonderful and inspirational to me. From my heart I send my love.God Bless you all from all of us, Geraldo "Jerry" Davila (Grosse Point Park, Michigan), Thanh Ly, Haleigh, Kelsey, Eric, Ellenie, Chance, Quinton, and Linh (the newest Davila).

To the Romero Family: I wish to express my sincere condolences for your loss. I pray that our Lord grant you peace and comfort while you mourn the passing of Noel. We all know, as humans, our time on this Earth is limited but may you be comforted to know that Noel is now reunited with Don Santos, Dona Julia and Tony, who have welcomed him home. As time passes, the memories of Noel and how he shared his love for his family will heal the pain that aches in your hearts. To his daughters, I knew your dad from when we were kids growing up in South Lorain playing baseball and football in the field on 29th Street. I know he loved you so much and he will be there for you always. To Richie, Gilbert, Bobby and Maico, may the memories of your brother live on forever. Even though we don't keep in contact on a regular basis, we embrace, as brothers, when we see each other wherever it may be. Our friendship, the life we shared while growing up in our neighborhood and the years we spent together in school, will live always, and that includes Noel. He may not be with us physically but he will always be in our hearts and memories. God bless you all. Joe Perez and Family
