Aunt Naomi was without a doubt the sweetest person I have ever met. She never complained and was always smiling. She worked tirelessly and cheerfully at whatever task she had in front of her. You could see Jesus in her. She will be missed.

I will never forgetMrs. Burden and her kindness. When Lisa and I would go to Dallas we frequently stopped by her grandparents farm, and her grandmother would feed us, and spend time talking to us, and I felt like I was at my grandparents home. She was a loving and giving woman, and she will be missed.
