Don , sorry to hear about your mother. My condolences to you and family.
Elizabeth loved my grandmother and our family well. We love her right back. She was a strong, kind, faithful friend. She made certain I knew she loved me and we always enjoyed together how I shared her name. She always said “Courtney Elizabeth” in full and I loved that. I will forever think of her every time I say my youngest daughters name (which also contains Elizabeth) or decorate my Christmas tree with the ornaments she sent me every year.
Jane , Don & family so sorry for your loss. Your mom was a classy lady and always very kind . I will always cherish the Dorchester Drive memories of our neighbors .
Many thoughts and prayers. Loved your mom very much she was always loving and kind to me growing up….
Elizabeth’s friendship will be always on my mind not only as a client but as a true lovely person . I am very glad I got the honor to have as a client for so many years! Beautiful inside and out💝 Glad to have met some of the family through the years!!! I did get to watch the live stream of her funeral from work on my phone, so lovely Thank you 🥰😇 Barb Baker
