    Naomi was wonderful girl with a ready smile and always eager to chat and laugh. I remember her visible joy when she returned from watching the ParaOlympics proudly waving the white gloves she had worn to hold the Olympic medals.
    Naomi taught me the true meaning of resilience. Thank you Naomi.

    I am so sorry to hear about Naomi and her sudden passing. I know she is smiling from above us in a beautiful and peaceful place. She was a bright light and always such a positive influence in my life when I met her through my work and interactions with the Rutland Boys & Girls Club. She will continue to be loved in our hearts and always remembered! God bless xoxo

  • Ginny Hutton says:

    It seemed like yesterday that I ran into Naomi downtown strolling with her mother.She always welcomed me with open arms like a forever freind – and that she will forever be, in my heart (even though my demands on her, as her school Physiotherapist,often seemed too difficult to her!)
    Her tears brought me to tears,yet her smile took me to Heaven.What a blessing she was to us all.
    Susan Quirk is away at present,but I’m sure shares all my thoughts and much more.

  • Karen Ouwendyk says:

    I remember Naomi from Elementary,Middle and High School.I do so with a smile on my face and I thank her for that! She always had a story for me and we could always find something to giggle about. She had such a love of life and spread it throughout all that she met. I will miss that chatterbox. I hope the hockey games are just as good where you are now Naomi!!
