    I was surprised and saddened to learn of Beth’s passing. I saw her just a few weeks ago and we enjoyed sharing some memories from our younger years and more than a few chuckles. My condolences to her son, her brother Bill and all who loved her. Godspeed.

    Elizabeth was a life long and very dear friend to me. She was as close as a sister to many of us that grew up with her. I will miss her quick wit, her sarcastic comments, her laugh and her ability to speak calmly, but most of all, I will miss how she was always there for you no matter what. R.I.P. my friend. I will always love you.
