Get the book "The Time of Eddie Noel" if you read you will find out if he is dead. If you know his daughters and grand kids ask them if he is dead.

I know this family and they are a wonderful family. I just wish people would learn not to judge anyone. Since I have been with this family they have alot of love even for white people. Why can't the public just leave them alone.

Eddie Noel was my grandfather's brother. He has since died. None of Eddie's siblings are living, as they have all passed away.
I had the pleasure of growing up around Eddie Noel. He was a good person.
There are a lot of Noel's in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Have any of you Holmes County residents checked out the letter to the editor in the Hampton Roads Virginian-Pilot by Ms. Linda Holmes of Portsmouth, VA?
