I offer my deepest condolences to your boys and family and friends.. You were definitely one of a kind . Love you Your friend, Debra Licatino
It was truly an honor to know Liz. We have shared so many special memories with our friends and classmates. The Class of 1983 has lost one of its sweetest angels. I will love and miss Liz forever.. I hope she is catching up with all our classmates we lost too soon and I know how much she always missed her Mom. I imagine that was a wonderful reunion. Forever young... My friends, My Friends! To all her friends and her family I will pray for your comfort and peace.
I will dearly miss you and you rest in peace and enjoy being with your parents in heaven I hope they are waiting for you beyond the heavenly gates. And may join the heavenly choir too, since you used to sing in the choir at church.
Liz had a beautiful, shining heart and she was willing to share it so openly. The world lost a lovely soul, and heaven has a new angel looking over us.
Judy, Iâ€™m so very sorry. May you always remember the good times that you shared with your sister. May she rest in Gods arms eternally.
My sweet cousin....too many memories to choose from. the time we were 5 years old. From school, band-high school and college,, CYO to Christmas Eves at our grandparents , I will never forget you. Liz â€˜s warm heart and bright smile touched everyone she knew. The world is a little dimmer now without you, but Heaven is definitely brighter. I know you mom and my mom met you at the pearly gates because â€œThe Pilotâ€ never went anywhere without her â€œCo-Pilot.â€ Fly high with the angels, Elizabeth.! Regan and Austin, I will continue to pray for you both in the days and weeks ahead. Prayers for peace and comfort. You both were the greatest loves of her life. I know she will continue to guard you two from above.
Even though I knew for a short time I considered you my friend. I tended to your wound and help you with other things I feel like it didnâ€™t do enough. Anyway you are not suffering with pain any longer and I know you are in heaven with your mom and family members. You will be missed

I will dearly miss her beautiful smile and compassionate heart. Time and distance never mattered - we could always start right back where we left off. Liz truly treated everyone as a close friend She will remain in our hearts always along with the really great memories. Godâ€™s peace sweet friend.
Liz your smile is beautiful. I think you were always smiling. I didnt know you well but that picture of you is beautiful. We have lost way to many of our classmates from Class of 1983. I hope your pain is gone and you are happy. Can you do me a favor. And give a big smile and hug to my Chief. Thank you. Fly high and i know the angels have a new recruit. I will pray for your boys for peace amd comfort at this hard time.â¤
Such a sad day on earth to lose such an amazing person with a beautiful smile but a wonderful Angel is gained in Heaven. So many special memories with Liz when I moved to Groves and meet Liz from band to church that I will cherish. . I will love and miss Liz forever.. To all her friends and her family I will pray for your comfort and peace.

Liz was a talented and passionate about kids (teaching) . She will hold a special place in countless hearts. My condolences to your families.
Although I only lived in SETX a short period of time, some of my best memories of Port Neches involved Liz. She was always supportive of me. I still have some of the gifts she gave me while I was her sons locker girl. Her Texas Tech trinket box she gave me holds all my wine openers :) she was truly be missed.
I knew Liz from our time together in band at Lamar University. She was always kind, happy and had an infectious smile. She touched many lives during her life and will surely be missed. Prayers for strength to her family and friends.
