Aunt Elizabeth was so good to me and always had a smile. Like I did with my Mom, we could always laugh at things that others took too seriously. I remember spending the night at her and Uncle James home many times, with Betty and going to the outside of the Knitting Mill where she worked, waiting for the steam to come out like a huge cloud. It was always Fun Time when I was there. I wish so much that I could be there Sunday, but I live in KY. and not able to financially.

Elizabeth was one on my favorite patients at the office: She always gave me a hard time just joking around with me, and always had a smile on her face. She will be missed by many! Prayers for the family! Fly high Elizabeth! Love you!
