    We have lost a beautiful young woman and a great Mommy!
    This is a true and terrible tragedy….one that has changed our family
    dynamic once again.
    The month of January has been a time of too many goodbyes
    and so much sadness; more than a family can bear, at times.
    We don’t understand how this could happen, but these difficult
    days bring family together, supporting and loving one another.
    When we feel lost in the dark, God will shine His rays of light to help
    us through that darkness. Ask and He will fill our needs.

  3. Lauren Christy Says:

    I will never ever forget our endless childhood memories of sleepovers, movie days, walking the neighborhoods and creeks, pool days, days off from school, crazy nights, and sweet heart to heart talks. Your were like my sister and your family took me in during the summers and mine took you in as well and i will always remember that. You will forever be in my heart and soul and i could never forget a face like yours. Rest in Paradise you Sweet Girl..

    Liz and I have lost touch, but we never grew apart. we were close friends in school. It truly breaks my heart that something so horrible could happen to a beautiful ,young ,smart, girl, when all she did was smile, love to her fullest, and being the best mother she could be to a handsome boy, who reminds me of her so much.. My love and prayers go to her family and friends, and I wish I could make it to the service . Her beautiful soul will never be forgotten!

    Liz was an amazing friend, and an absolute wonderful mother. I wish to be as good of a mom as she was one day. I strive to be like liz. She was head strong, brave, and kind hearted. Ill forever cherish all the conversations we had about our children. She was always there for me, and others whenever we needed it. I pray so hard for her family and her beautiful son. She will always watch over them. And jay now has an amazing gaurdian angel. We love you liz. You will be forever missed…

  6. Angel N Says:

    Words cannot even begin to describe the pain and hurt we’ve felt since her passing. Her becoming an angel has left a deep void in many people’s lives and hearts. The unimaginable has struck a family very near and dear to my heart. I remember Liz from when she was around 8. She was beautiful inside and out. I know baby Jay will grow up knowing in his heart how much his mom loved and adored him. She had an effervescent personality and a smile to warm a room. Rest easy baby girl
