My family and I have known the Benavente's since I was a child. There are so many wonderful memories I could share. Both families were military bread through and through. Our first encounter was in Key West FL and it was there that the blessings began. It turned into a lifelong friendship that we will always be so very grateful for. Liz was full of life and laughter and loved her some Tom Jones!! She loved her family to the fullest they were her heart! She will be missed. You will all be in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Love to you all. The Singletons🙏💜

I’m so sorry to hear of Liz passing. She was such a fun, vibrant lady. The first time I met Liz I was struck with how sophisticated she seemed to me as a young girl. She brought real energy to the family. Her flaming red hair & bubbly personality is what I will always remember. ❤️
