Gary, Kate, and I are so sad that dear Aunt Liz has left this life to re-join Uncle Bob and sisters Jo and Rita (my mother) in a higher place. May she rest peacefully with those loved ones. We pray Rob and Pete and Tamara and Maureen and all her special people here will take comfort in the love and happy memories of her we all share.
