Dear Mrs. Flowers, we will certainly miss you. You and Mr. Flowers were the best of neighbors and friends. I have such great memories growing up in 4-H, showing Angus calves, sheep, and pigs in the Livestock Shows, and relishing Mr. Steini's BBQ. Both of you were role models for me and my siblings. In these last few years my children and I enjoyed visiting you whenever we came to visit my parents. Visits to Baton Rouge will not be the same. God bless you as you journey to the Father.

Aunt Naomi was the epitome of southern graciousness. It was always such a special occasion when she and Uncle Leslie came to Illinois for a visit. And we especially loved visiting their house when down south, especially the chickens!

Psalm 90:10 says that the days of our years are 70 years, And if because of special mightiness they are 80 years.
May the memories of the wonderful times you shared together bring a smile and joy in your heart.

Rest in peace Aunt Naomi. You were such an awesome lady and had such a wonderful life. I loved it when I could spend time with you and Uncle Lesley. I'm sorry distance has made it hard to visit with you over these last years, but you, and my southern family, have always been in my heart and mind.
