Elizabeth was my Mother N Law for 281/2 years. She was a great mother and my best friend. I remember she loved to go to all the craft shows all over Memphis. And for Christmas she always gave me and my sister n law Cheryl QVC products, we always had a special bond and I have lost a great friend. I know she has gone to Heaven and is so much happier, May she Rest In Peace, I will truly miss her
