When I first met Naomi, I was a teenager helping uncle Merril Dail, in tobacco in the summer in the "70s. It was hard work but we made the best of it by always having a good time. Never forget we were working a field and a tornado all of a sudden came. We all got in a flat bed truck and prayed that it would soon pass. Never been so scared. Wish we could bring back the good ole days, such memories.
Robert, I am so sorry for your loss and for your children and grandchildren. But I know you will always have special memories of Naomi and the love you shared and most important the love of Jesus in your hearts. I know she is at peace and no more suffering and with our Lord in his loving arms, I just can't imagine a more beautiful place to be. I pray the Lord will surround you and your family in his loving arms and comfort you at this time of sorrow. We love you! Barbara Jean and Chris Rivenbark
