Elizabeth was more like an Aunt to me than cousin. I will never forget all of the wonderful memories of her and your family while we were growing up. It was so much fun going swimming there in your pool, painting cute ceramic pieces in her studio, riding the mini bike in the pasture and wrecking, and pulling up freshly planted flowers and re-planting them....Boy! that wasn't a good idea:) Especially for Mark!
I am saddened to lose her but I know she is with her Jesus and Hugh who loves her so! May all of the family find peace and joy in knowing that she fought the good fight and now she is at rest....
With our Deepest Sympathy and Love for All of You!
