Obituaries are condensed biographies of people's lives, written by the people who loved them.

Like a memorial service, they tell us things we may not have known about the person, and may leave us wishing we had known them better.

I am very sorry to hear about the death of Naomi Hardy. She was a thoughtful contributor to many citizens efforts in our community. She frequently attended Council and Planning Commission meetings and commented. She had a detailed knowledge of public policy. I appreciated her participation and contributions to conversations and ideas. RIP Naomi.
