    Mrs Naomi, you are leaving a big spot open at Central Baptist; your beautiful smile and loving heart is going to be missed dearly by so many. I believe with all my heart you’re in that heavenly choir singing praises to our Father God, Savior Jesus Christ and our Helper the Holy Spirit!! Heaven just keeps getting sweeter and sweeter Ma’am. Until we meet again, love you.

    One of the best Moms I’ve ever known. She never considered her job over. She never got too tired. She never stopped being a devoted Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother.
    She will be forever missed.

    What a beautiful Christian friend, when my husband (George Hensley) came to Central Baptist as youth Director and later served as Minister of music, he recruited Naomi & Laymen to work with him in the youth dept, they were a perfect fit for that, Naomi. Worked alongside with George in every way, she was a tremendous influence over the youth, and Layman usually accompanied us on youth trips, what a blessing to have worked with them! She is going to be missed greatly by her family, but what a homecoming when she met her friends and family in Heaven, God give this whole family left here on earth comfort as they go thru these times !
