Naomi was a gentle and kind woman. Her treasures were not materials of this world, her treasure was her family. Her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren were her treasures. She enjoyed talking about each one, a visit from one of her family was a story she enjoyed telling and remembering. Her treasures will miss her greatly.
