    Ralph & Family,
    I was so saddened to see of Naomi’s passing. I enjoyed her visits to the store over the last 35 years. She reminded me of my own mother! I think we talked more about our families than the item she was looking for. I’ll miss her, and my thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    Dear Ralph and family, I wish I could be in Minnesota to personally reach out and touch you, or look you direct in the eyes and tell you how much I care. Naomi and you are such dear friends to my parents and our family. With sincere thoughts and prayers, love Kim Markling (oldest daughter of Walt and Pat Markling)
