We have known Bill and Liz for fifty years, meeting through our husbands’ careers at Merck. We have kept in touch through all these years in spite of several moves for each of us. We thought of Liz as a “Southern Belle” in the best sense of the term.
We have always admired her talent to beautify their home and her person. Our deepest sympathy to our friend Bill.

I first met Liz and Bill about 55 years ago at a friends cottage in Sandy Point. She was one of the most beautiful women I’ve ever met and when I ran into them about three years ago at the same cottage, she still was. My deepest sympathy to her very devoted husband Bill.
