    Although I have not supported Beth in the past, I recently changed my mind and signed up to volunteer in her campaign. This is a great shock, Dan and my prayers are with and for the Krom family at this terrible time.

    I don’t know the words to articulate the loss that I, and I’m sure others who have come into contact with Noah, are experiencing. Although I haven’t been in close contact with Noah since I moved eastward (Florida) from Irvine; I have ALWAYS regarded him as a member of my extended family. Crazy Couch cushion fights in the living room and trampoline parties, in the backyard. His incessant need to know everything about an argument presented to him. His annoying habit of not allowing said argument to conclude, until he was successful in altering your viewpoint.

    Noah’s personality was a rich mix of kind-heartedness, affability, great intellect, and humor. Even when he was trying to be mean, he did so with a laugh and a smile.

    I will miss talking sports, music, and life in general with this great young man.

    I know that God always takes the best ones first, but that doesn’t make it hurt any less.

    Condolences to the Krom family, I know that this is a difficult time, but please take solace in knowing that your son did a great deal and touched many lives, mine included, in his slight years on this planet.

    Take Care.

    I can’t even express the profound sadness I felt on hearing this news. I have lost two children, and the pain never goes away. To be planning a funeral rather than a graduation celebration just adds to the pain Beth and her family are feeling at this time. Our family sends its best thoughts to Beth and her family.
