    Carolyn and Tommy, I am so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. As a young child, my grandfather, Sam Gregory, would take us to visit your mom and dad. I would often run into them while out shopping and always enjoyed catching up on our families.

    We are saddened to read about Me. Will's death on Saturday night. She was a good neighbor and a good person. Like so many others in Nederland, Liz did some sewing for me.. She was such a pretty lady inside and out. I know you will miss her.. We regret not attending her service, having spent Friday in Houston and not reading the paper until Saturday night.

    My sincere sympathy to the family of a wonderful, beautiful lady. She made me several clothes and they were beautiful. She and her husband were good friends to our family, especially with our mother and father. My father and Tom worked together at pure oil refinery and were members of the same church. We had sone good get together. May god comfort you in your sorrow.

    I always lived to be around Elizabeth. She always had a smile on her face and she was a wonderful seamstress. She made some beautiful clothes for me and my mother. She and Tom were friends with my parents and they spent some good times together. Our prayers will be with your family as you go through this difficult time.

    To the Family. Our condolence. In Paradise, Jesus will fulfill his role as ‘the resurrection and the life.’ ‘There is going to be a resurrection.’ John 11:25; Acts 24:15
