Naomi was a strong woman, strength for her children, a role model, a best friend, and a wonderful mother. She knew what unconditional love was. She would spend time outdoors watching planes go over her house, which she enjoyed very much, and spending time with her kids and grandkids.
We will miss and love you everyday mom, grandma, great-grandma. You go fly higher than those airplanes in God's heavenly kingdom. Hugs and kisses: See ya later, Mom. - Jody and Tony
