Every year the Noel's house was decorated with joyous NOEL from top to bottom, left to right. Christmas goodies were baked. Christmas presents were bought and wrapped.
The Noel's came for Thanksgiving. Their home was filled with joy.
December 1st was different. The youngest Noel didn't call. He didn't write.
The Noel's drove to see him. No one answered. No Noel.
25 days passed. No one baked the Christmas goodies. No one bought and wrapped the presents. Oneta Noel's health began to fail her. She was too weak to talk.
Oneta Noel lived on Christmas, but died December 26th with a broken heart.
