Naomi was a true prayer warrior and I believe her prayers will continue to be answered. I have many wonderful memories of her since our families were best friends. She loved people and she loved to laugh. Such a joy to be around. She will be missed but we will meet again!

Our wonderful family networker has blessed our family, her church family and so many more. her ability to get to the bottom of issues so she cold pray about it was awesome. I sure am challenged to live, love and laugh the way she did. also to be that prayer warrior because “Prayer changes things”. She opened her home to me when I worked in Eufaula and made me call it my home also – you are my family and you bring me joy she would say. Later when Uncle Leon passed away I stayed extra with her and on Wednesday nights so we could come home from church after dark together. She said that I made a difference. I will cherish our times together. I learned so much from Our wonderful family networker, Aunt Naomi.
