    I am thrilled to be a part of this.I have lost so many of my family members,my sister,Margie Nobles Head died suddenly,11/2/2007.I have lost a child in past years as well.
    For me to have connection with my “lost family members” Charleen Nobles Kerkes & John Wesley Nobles,Jr. and extended family of all the USS Grunion family members is a very special gift.
    My cup truly runs over!
