  1. Ed Laws says:

    Randy and Family, I’m sorry for your loss!

  2. Tammy V Douglas says:

    I’m so sorry for the families loss of this fine lady. I did “Nomi’s” hair for quite a few years. She always made me laugh. I would always put a smile on my face. She told me she loved Sam Cooke music. So I made sure I always played it when she came into the beauty shop. She would tell me stories of times when she was young, and all the fun pool parties they would have at her house. She told me what a great son Randy was. I could tell that by him bringing her to get her hair done. Then leaving his busy job to come back and get his mom. I hope all of you will relish in all the fond memories you have of her. I always said “if I live to be Nomi’s age, I hope I’m just like her”.
