Antoinette, Missy, Rita & Bugga I am so very sorry for the loss of your Mother & Sister. My girl Liz & I go way back to our childhood days. I have so many great, hysterically funny memories of Liz & I together that I will cherish forever. Lizzie was one of a kind. There will never be another like her. I know Ms. Ann & Mr. Bubby were there to welcome her home. Rest in peace my dear old friend. Until we meet again Shed. Love you always girl.
