I was sorry to read of Naomi's passing. We were childhood friends (and North Lafountain Street neighbors). We walked that mile to (and from) Riley School twice a day! Your family will be in my prayers today. May the Lord bless and comfort your hearts as you say "So Long" to Naomi. And, may we all meet someday in our eternal, heavenly home. In Christian Love, Estella (Balog) Geyer
