She cherishes her marriage of over 60 years, and is grateful that herlove led to raising and loving four children, thirteen grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren. This rich tableau of four generations inspired herto write "The ABC's of Values"Words have meaning, and Naomi wants to explain to others, especially young people, why their outlook, opinions, attitudes toward themselves and others,and trying and being their best, is so important.The ABC's of Values, written in short paragraphs, are explanatory, not judgmental. The ideas and ideals are meant to edify and encourage selfconfidence, self improvement and living well with and for others. The letter "L" is Naomi's favorite. To her, love is life's most importantvalue.
