I remember working for Elizabeth and Thomas at the gas station. I will always fondly remember the good times we had. She was one of a kind.

Just heard about Elizabeth's passing - It has been a while since we have seen her and the family. I pray God will provide comfort and strength to the family. We always thought a lot of the 2 of them when they lived in Texarkana. They were a lot of fun to be around.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you the family. Sorry for your loss

Liz & Tom were very special friends but just like family to us. We went on many many trips together and always had the best time! I could always call her any time and talk about anything with her. She would always try to give me the best advice or her thoughts on anything I was dealing with! I always called her my sidekick and she was one of my dearest friends! I loved her and Huck both so much. I will definitely miss her and our phone calls ! Rest In Peace Lizzy and know your are being missed so much! I guess you , Huck can give Shelly a hard time now! Love you till we meet again , Pat & Mark
