    Uncle Bill, Donna, and Steve,
    I'm so sorry for all of you. Aunt Naomi was such a kind person and I'm sorry for the loss you're going through right now.

  3. Although I only met her at our church's bazaar, she was always upbeat and happy and encouraging. I am sure there is a party to welcome her in heaven. She will be missed.

  5. Dear McGrew Family – I met Ms. Naomi back in 1995 when I arrived at UHCL for my second job fresh out of grad school. I'm still here and the reason I share that is because many of us "old-timers" still fondly remember and talk about Ms. Naomi and her famous pancakes! Oh my gosh she made the best pancakes and even though I had already grabbed something from home on my way in, I'd often go get a second breakfast from Ms. Naomi! She was always fun to talk to and she always made the cafeteria feel like home because she was there talking to you while she was doing her thing on the grill. It was a sad day when the university contracted dining services out and the day she retired. I've never had a pancake like that again. Ms. Naomi will always be one of my favorite UHCL memories. May God bless you and your family.

    Very Sincerely,
    David Rachita
