I am so sorry for your loss. Naomi had a smile on her face every time I saw her and she was always friendly. The first time I remember meeting her was when she operated a second hand store in Irrigon. I remember playing with Sandra and Jerry in the store while my mom talked to Naomi and shopped.
Naomi had a heart of gold and welcomed my kids into her home when they went to visit their dad and Sandra. She made them feel like they were part of her family, not just visitors when she had them over for holiday dinners. Naomi was one of the hardest working, friendly, and nice people I have ever met.

So many memories have come to mind since Naomi's family shared their emails with our family the past few weeks. Naomi was my first cousin and she was so thoughtful in calling us to share about her family. She was so proud of all of you. It was an exciting day when Naomi and her brother James Haggard found their mother and sister Shirley, after 50 plus years. Naomi was full of life and love. She will be missed by all of us but we celebrate that she is now with her heavenly father. We loved her and pray for all the family members and friends as they grieve and remember how special she was.
