The memory that comes back to me the most is when Linda and I were schoolgirls.Noel was obviously smitten hard with Linda even then and the three of us would hang out together when I stayed with Linda.But he always made me feel he enjoyed my company even though he must have wanted Linda to himself. He once said " I love Linda, always have, always will". We had a lot of laughs over the years. My heart is full of sorrow for all the people who loved and still love Noel.
