  1. Dear family,
    That was a beautiful tribute to Aunt Liz. I will forever remember the times we spent in Bay Village, OH, camping and visiting Colorado, and the many years in Albuquerque. My mother-in-law Pat always considered Liz very special too. Her smile could shine in any room.

    Dear Family,

    There are so many lovely memories in all these wonderful pictures of my beautiful cousin Liz. It was always a special treat to see Liz and Bill when they came to California for a visit with Uncle Ernie and Aunt Elizabeth and my Dad, Ezra, and Dorothy. She was two years my senior and would quietly remind me of that and we would have a laugh. She was a very special person in so many ways. Love to you all.

    Dear Family,
    This is such a beautiful “Life Tribute” to this special lady. I have wonderful memories of the cousin times we shared. Some times when I was a little girl and then as we grew up our visits were in Laguna Woods, California with her parents and my dad, her Uncle Ezra. So kind and happy she always was and her Bill was a wonderful man as well. May she now rest in peace while we all enjoy great memories of wonderful times shared with her.
    Blessings for all her family,
    Serena Webb Foxworthy
