Please accept our sincere condolence for the passing of your beautiful mother. How well I remember as a child the family reunions at aunt Ella's house and seeing your parents and all the family there. Your mother was a beautiful person. We send our deepest sympathy.

Debra Orders asked me to post this here for her: ?She will have a reward in heaven. She was kind and loving to me when I was young unmarried and pregnant working in a shirt mill in troutman packing pants on a conveyor, None of the women there would eat with me or talk to me cos I was a young pregnant girl. They just assumed they knew my circumstances. Lizzy every day would call me to her and eat with me and talk with me. She loved me, I will never ever forget her as long as I live and how her kindness and love made me feel. I hope her family sees this. Sleep in peace dear Lizzy you were a true christian and loving friend."
