Elizabeth was a dear special friend to me. She always was so pleasant to be around. Her daughter, Sonya is just like a daughter to me. I love them both and am so sorry for the loss of such a good friend. Elizabeth will definitely be missed. Love and prayers for Sonya and sons. Shirley Campbell.

Started getting close to Elizabeth when she would do my alterations & would hardly charge me for her work. Then would pop in her shop in white oak just to say hi. Then started calling her mom, because I had lost mine in 2014. She was such a sweet lady & inspiration when I was down. May we meet again in heaven.
