Naomi was the best, most loving sister-in-law anyone could ever have, and when she said she would pray about something I knew she was going to PRAY about it.

As Bonnie's classmate at the Alliance Academy International, I will never forget her mother's serenity during the time of Jimmy's being swept out to sea and the search that followed. Truly another saint is in the Lord's presence.

Dear Bonnie and Annette, We were saddened to learn of Naomi's passing. Nidrah had called to let us know. Your mama was such a precious lady. Our prayers and thoughts are with you all. Take care and God bless during this difficult time. Your cousins, Clif, Beth, Roger and Debbie Seaton and Ms. Anna May Seaton

We are most sorry for the loss of your mother and our campground neighbor. She was a woman whose strength came from the Lord and showed much joy because of it. May you feel blessed by your memories of her.

My sympathy to Bob and all the family. Naomi and I used to visit often when we would pass each other walking at Wesleyan Village. She lived a life full of devotion and service to God and her family.
