I am Naomi’s daughter and I remember living on 4th St when I was 5 or 6 and every night, Mom would lay her long hair over the couch and let me brush it for hours. I loved to brush her long hair and she loved it too. I can also remember once when my Dad was teaching Mom to drive and I was in the car. She put us in the ditch and she never drove again.

I’ll always remember what was one of the happiest days of my life when Mom got out of the hospital and came and got all of us from Grandma’s to take us home.

And boy, if you couldn’t read her writing, watch out for the stabbing pen. There were times when I would be feeling very down and just a look at Mom and all she’d been through would give me the inspiration to go on. Always smiling!! I remember the time Mom sent us to the dentist and we skipped out and went to the playground. She found out and was really mad. I remember when she would be upstairs and she would stomp her foot and I knew that meant I’d better come right now. I’ll always have my memories of Mom. The good & the bad, but all very special to me. I’ll love her forever and I will see her again someday and what a glorious day that will be for me.

Love you forever—Your Daughter, Debbie.

P.S. Thanks for the memories!!

I could not read this at the Memorial Service, so I am writing, now, instead. The best memories of my MOM is when she used to sing. She would sing and sing and I will always remember her great voice. Even after she had her strokes and couldn’t sing or talk anymore, she never gave up. I always respected my MOM for that. She went through thousands of spiral notebooks and ink pens, just writing what she wanted to say. I hated to see my MOM like that, but it never bothered her. She was happy to be alive, so she could see her kids grow up. She was stronger than I could ever imagine and she did it for us kids! My MOM went without, just to make sure the kids had what they needed. I will always have GREAT memories and remember the fun times, hard times and special moments with my MOM.

Me and Connie LOVE YOU MOM AND WATCH OVER US, cause you know we need it.

Naomi was a very special friend and the time spent with her changed my life. Her outlook on life despite her physical shortcomings has been an example to me in coping with my own disabilities. I will miss her very much. My heartfelt sympathies to all the family and friends. I wish I could be there to say

There is just a few things I would love to say and I thank you all for Listening. I never grew up knowing Naomi. I met her when I was 26 and that was the best day I can remember. You, see, I am Naomi’s daughter, too. I can remember her walking down her steps and seeing me and the Bond was there even though I had not seen her in years and I could see the love in her eyes and I am so proud to know that she gave birth to me. I have never met a Stronger Person. All her struggles in her life, never got her down and now that her struggle is over, I hope we can all carry the Love and Strength she gave to all that she loved.
