My deeepest condolences to you, and to your family. You are all in my thoughts, and in my prayers. I didn't know your Mother, personally, but I've had the pleasure of reading so many kind things, that others, who knew her, had to say. She sounds like she was an amazing woman, very classy, with a big heart. I only know your sister Lisa, vicariously, through Fb, and she seems lovely, but obviously, I know you, and you both turned out to be truly incredible people...no wonder, as you had such a shining example, and an inspirational role model. My heart goes out to you, at this difficult time. XoXo

Although I did not have the good fortune to meet Elizabeth Reeves Allen, I am privileged to know and be friends with her children. I know the sterling human being that she was because I know first hand the amazing job she did rasing Lee and Lisa. With their joy for life, kindness to other people and goodness, Lee and Lisa are a living testament to the teachings and influence of their mother. Lee and Lisa, my thoughts and prayers are with you. Love, Fran Day

We will miss your mother. She was always there to welcome us when visiting Lago Mar in the summer, and enjoyed many good times at my father's, Norman Knowlton, annual February party. She was truly a wonderful woman. Our sympathies and may God's Peace be on her and with you and your family.
