Russ and Danny, Saddened to see your Mom's obituary. Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. We will miss her so much! Liz was not only my dear cousin but also one of the strongest ladies I have ever known! Disregarding her own physical issues, she persevered to the end to care for her household. She was truly the "virtuous woman" of Proverbs 31. "...let her own works praise her..." God called her "Home."
