My little sister, Liz,
You made many sacrifices in your life. Everyone came first, you last, not looking for a reward. Now your reward is with The Lord Our Savior.
We know you were tired so we had to let you go!
May you Rest In Peace.
In our hearts forever.
With all our love,
Merlin & “Ne”

Liz,
You were my best friend. Your faith has always kept you strong, through all of your trials. You never felt sorry for yourself. Through every trial you forgave others and as God instructs us, we must do the same. We must let go of fear and bitterness. We must learn to love one another and forgive!!! God will test us, but I pray we can all forgive. As I sit here missing you, I’m just glad that your daily trauma is over.
Love, Helen

Aunt Liz, many times growing up I've called you Nanny then realized oops Aunt Liz. I am one of many you spoiled and spent as much time as you could. I will always remember the time we've spent together, sleepovers, baking, letting me invite my friends over too. The vacations we've share and the special events you've made. Cheering us on like a proud parent. When your teammates knows Aunt Liz then you know how often they've seen you and grown to love. Even though I may have out grown your lap, I've never out grown the love in my heart. You were their when we needed you to be and we was there with you when you needed us. The time we lived with you was a gift that we all needed to learn and be with one another once again. You got to be a small part in a big way in my children's lives. Though they're were ups and downs on each of our journey I will remember all the ups that out way the downs, it only ment growth of love and understanding we were ment to have. I always love you and respected you even though you've spoiled me and many others. May you rest easy, bittersweet to know you are gone but also pain free. Love always, pus' squaly aka Holly
