    I knew Liz from BSF and considered her a close friend. We shared common interests in bible study, sewing and knitting, and had dinner at Chedders once a week before the virus shut-down. We still kept in touch by phone and shared our lives. I am heartbroken to hear of her death although I have no doubt that she is in heaven. I would appreciate your keeping in touch with me; and I pray for God’s protection as you mourn the loss of your Mother, Grandmother, Great grandmother, and the Blessing she was to all of us who knew her.

    With Affection and Sincere Sympathy,
    Debbie Sparks

    Dear Ledbetter Family, I’m so glad I got to visit with Liz last October during Lauren’s wedding weekend. She was a very sweet dear lady and had a great sense of humor. I hope that your fond memories of her will comfort and give you peace in the days ahead. In Sympathy, Nikki Anderson

    Liz was a talker! She and my mom would gab for hours in person or on the phone. They laughed a lot about things and mostly gossip! At least she didn’t call me a rat like Uncle Bill did! She sure could cook some good food back in her earlier years too! Sure going to miss her. You have my utmost sympathy! Still hard to take that she is gone.
