I remember Mrs. Naomi as the camp nurse at Camp Victory when I was a camper and again when my children were little. I think Dan and I also stayed in their home early in our ministry when Dan was preaching a revival at the Southern Methodist church in Tuscaloosa and also visiting with them when my brother John Courson was pastoring at that church.
Many fond memories of her.
