Heaven gained a kind and loving angel.  I knew Elizabeth from All Saints and St. Mark's.  I visited with her sometimes while seeing my mother at Calder Woods.  When my granddaughter was baptized Elizabeth took lovely pictures she shared with me.  I am so sorry for her families loss.

Elizabeth was such a fun person to be around. I'll certainly miss her as I know all of her friends will. My deepest sympathy to Anne and her brother.
