    Sweet Elizabeth. I am saddened to learn of your passing. You were one of the most wholesome, genuine friends I have ever had. No one can or will ever replace you! I will cherish all the fun times we had on our shopping trips and having coffee (with all those flavored creamers). Just wish we had gotten together when I moved back to this area. I did enjoy our phone calls. So glad your pain and suffering are over. I will miss you, dear friend. Rest peacefully, sweet, sweet, Elizabeth.
