    It was such a pleasure to meet Elizabeth in 2003 at Kim and Dave’s wedding. I experienced her as a very gentle, kind, loving woman. It was so poignant when she told the story of seeing Pier 21 the first time. I cherish the occasions when I shared her company and honey cake! May you take comfort in each other’s company as you share this loss. A light has gone from the world. Dianne Miller

    Margie, I remember so well going to your home at lunchtime when we were at Sacred Heart school together. Your Mom would be there with her warm smile. She would have an amazing soup with homemade noodles ready for us and she was so loving and kind. May your families memories be a comfort to you at this sad time. Debra Jennings
