I loved Naoma as I spent many years with her as she took such good care of my mother. She was so kind and loved my kids like they were her grandchildren. She was truly a good woman.

What can you say of a lady that lived the life of My Aunt Nay. We loved her and all that she was and did and stood for. She has been greatly missed, since her illness began. Now we know she is at peace, but still will be missed. I believe now she is having a wonderful reunion with her husband and my Father(her brother) and Mother and all the others who have gone on before her. She lived a good life. God Bless all of the family, we love you all.
