Dear Gill Family,
I was so saddened to hear of Naomi's death. My thoughts are with you all. She was a very special lady. Jennifer, I don't know if you remember me, but I was your third grade teacher. Whenever I saw your mom, she would keep me up to date on your life. She was always so proud of you and your siblings. My love and sympathy to you all. Nora Kurimai

My sincere condolences to all the friends and family. During these times of distress is especially more necessary to pour out your heart to God in prayer because he cares for you. He promises that all who do so will have their thoughts and feelings soothed by "the peace of God that surpasses all understanding. Phillipians 4: 6,7
