Though she was not my grandmother by blood, she was the best Grandmother-in-Law I could as fork. She was always so accepting and loving every time I was able to visit. I loved going to church with her and spending time with her. She was a true jewel in this world and I cannot wait to see her again when I reach the other shore!

It hurt my heart so bad to hear about the passing of a very dear woman I grew to love years ago. Her late daughter, Audrey and I were very good friends. I spent time at her house and cherish that. Audrey and I graduated from high school together. Elizabeth was such a kind hearted and loving person. It comforts me to know I will see her again when we enter the gates of Heaven. I love you Elizabeth.
