Aunt Liz, I have known you almost 47 years. I was you and Uncle Kurts flower girl when I was 5 and I remember that day. Both of you always treated me like I mattered as a kid. That stuck with me. We kept in touch over the years with both sides going through heartache. Not once did you ever complain! Or pity yourself! You did what you could and accepted what you couldnt! Thats a rare person. You were a beautiful person in every respect and im blessed to have had you in my life! Ill catch you on the flip side you incredible person! Love, Your niece Jodi(Hartwig) Grenner

I honestly dont know what Ill do without you ....no joke. Mommy you were my grounding all of my adult life when needed and the strongest woman I know. You got me. Even when I couldnt explain it, you knew. You gave me advice or you would put me back in check. I dont know how to proceed without that because Ive never known a world without you.....I know youre happy....you have been without daddy for almost 13yrs and it was time. We just talked about how much you missed him last week on his bday. I know you were tired. I know. I know youre watching over all of of us and you wont stop because you gotta know everything...lol. Thank you for being my mommy and I will never forget the beach...thank you mommy for what you said... You will never be forgotten. My heart is broken but I know yours is now whole so Go be happy, there is no one I know that deserves it more than you. May You Forever Rest In Happiness
Meaboo Mommy xoxo April
