I am so very sorry for the recent passing of my Aunt Liz. My condolences to my cousins Rick, Bud, Elizabeth Ann, and families. Just two weeks before her passing I had sent a cheerful card wishing her the best! Every time I see a yellow rose, from now on I will think of her, The Yellow Rose of Texas, as my Daddy used to call her. Love to you all.

Been missing you, a week ago today, we had a brief visit on the phone. This all happened so fast. I keep catching myself thinking I need to call you. Check on you. Make you laugh. You are missed.

Liz McCurdy was my favorite aunt., the youngest sister of my father Tomie Hopper. He called her his yellow rose of Texas. She had a beautiful voice and used to sing with Roy Orbinson many years ago. She could make you feel welcome in her house like no other. Always worried about feeding you enough. She worked for many years at the drug store in Stanton and being friendly, she knew everyone. She will be greatly missed.
