Our mothers were best friends! My mom was her mom’s maid of honor! We grew up as kids seeing each other often. After I joined the Air Force, Liz and I wrote each other very often(very “ enjoyable “letters )and she helped me survive being away from my family. After I retuned to the States, Liz and I continued to stay in contact with each other keeping the other up-to-date regarding our families! Liz was like a cousin to me! Liz was like a girlfriend to me ! Liz was like a sister to me !! Liz WAS a part of me!!God Bless her and her family! She is missed !

Liz was the first girl I ever kissed (Wonderful and I will never forget), she taught me well. My thoughts and prayers are with the Tucker and Gelpern family. Liz and family, I will always remember the many wonderful times we spent together when we were so young and innocent. Heaven has called you too soon.
