Her family is deeply grieving her passing, but Elizabeth was looking forward to someday meeting her savior, Jesus, face to face.
To my wonderful friend, Elizabeth, never have I seen such courage and determination in someone such as you.
You are not just another face in the crowd but my closest friend and a remarkable woman with warmth, depth and integrity, always wanting to do the right thing. It has been an honor to have known you and to have watched the Lord bless you because of that integrity. I am sure as you’ve traveled through life you have blessed others in their journey as you have blessed me. I’m a better human being for having known you.
Love, Your Pal, Michael. “Oh Elizabeth”
