She will be greatly missed by me and a lot of others. I love her very much!
Mrs. Liz was so special and kind. That being said, our conversations indicate that she continued to mourn and miss the love of her life, Dennis. She’s so happy, I know, to be in the presence of her family. What joy to know we’ll see each other again.
