    To Elizabeth Family and Friends:
    I send my deepest warm thoughts for your loss.

    I have known Elizabeth since we were 5 or 6 years old there about as neighbors (2 doors down). We were in Brownies, Girl Scouts, some school functions (10-12th grade) and graduation. We both moved away from our home towns and reconnected down the line of life. Yes Liz was known by most as being a quiet person, but when she spoke, you best listen, because she left you in awe D because, “I thought she was so quiet..” In these last few years I had so enjoyed her wit and sweetness. Rest in peace Liz, you make me smile…
