The children, staff, and Board of Eliada Home were very sorry to learn of Elizabeth's passing. We are very grateful that the family chose to remember Eliada as a tribute to her. We'd be very pleased to learn what if any connection she had to Eliada. We are holding her friends and family in the light.

My deepest sympathy to all of Elizabeth's family. She was such a lovely wonderful person,and I will miss my visits with her. I remember the times when Elizabeth and Howard would walk by my house on the way to the pasture. Those were good times. I will miss visiting with her.

Love you Mamaw. My favorite memories are when you would come see Ashley and me at horse shows,and when I would tell Ashley that I was stealing her grandma because you were so wonderful. I looked forward to getting your Christmas cards every year. It seems that you were loving and kind to everyone you ever met. You will be missed terribly <3>
