    From the minute I met Miss Elizabeth I was convinced that she had to be something different and indeed she was. She loved her children, loved her work and helped you when you needed it. No long conversations about why you needed help, she was there to assist. My sister and mother recently told me about their own connections with Miss Elizabeth. like how she enjoyed her “girl talk” times, she loved to get the 411! She loved to see her family together in unity and harmony, this I think was the accomplishment she most adored, her family and how she shaped that family.

    If you ever met her, you would have thought you were talking with an angel. She was proof that
    angels live among us. She will truly be miss. Love you mom.
