I worked with Elizabeth at Josey Oil. She was a unique legend with her accomplishments. I was sorry to miss her service but I was out of town and learned of her passing upon my return. My sympathy to the family and friends with your loss. May sacred tears help to heal your hearts.

I am saddened by the passing of Elizabeth, but every thought of her makes me smile. What a remarkably interesting woman with an endless sense of humor. I am grateful to have known her and to have called her my friend.

Your sense of humor and irreverence - thank you for always making me laugh. I certainly enjoyed making you laugh also. Wish we'd had more years together (especially some younger ones!). I hope you are surrounded by your loved ones in Heaven. I love you.
