  3. Katy, Clark, Troy, Matt and Sam,
    Your sister and mother was a very special friend of mine dating back to our high school days. I feel so blessed that we reconnected 10 years ago and had so many fun times together. Liz was an amazing woman with so many talents. She was devoted to our Lord and loved all of you so much. Her grandchildren were the joy of her life and she took such pride in them. I am heartbroken that she is gone but so glad that she is no longer in pain and fighting cancer. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you now and for the future. All my love to you.
    Lisa Vise

  5. I had the pleasure of meeting Liz in Mexico for Susan and Troy’s wedding. It was clear how much she loved and valued her family. I’m so sorry for your loss but glad she is with Jesus and free from pain.

  6. Cheryl and Coleman Ruiz :

    Coleman and I are so sorry for the loss of Liz. We got our six mini donkeys from her and soon as we met, we realized she was such a great person. Coleman and I drove to her home and only met her 3 times but have kept in touch on Facebook since, and she is in such a better place in heaven with God. Her sons and their families were everything to her.

  7. Donna and Tommy Casey :

    Me and Tommy are so sad to here of Liz’s passing. She was a great and admired friend to us, without who I would not have gotten all these wonderful donkeys! I really enjoyed getting to know her and all she taught me about raising donkeys prayers for her family and friends she will be missed so much

    Although our paths seldom crossed these past many years since kid’s were younger I loved Liz & always enjoyed her wisdom & thoughtfulness & smile -almost always smileing. I will miss her posts on fb.
    To her boys & family, so sorry – I will keep you all in my prayers -especially the grands who I know she loved so much.
    Love you all.

    I am saddened to hear of Liz’s passing, but I am thankful that she has been reunited with her parents, and her Lord and Savior. She fought a long and valiant battle. Prayers for her family and loved ones. There is no doubt that she loved her family, and she loved being Mizzy

  10. David and Sharon Olszewski :

    I am sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.

  11. Gena Geyer Sylvester :

    Liz was my Little Sister in our sorority, Alpha Chi Omega, at Lamar University. I loved her. She was so full of energy and I can still here that laugh. All she ever talked about was Mel – she adored him. After years of going our separate ways, we reconnected in Houston during her many visits and I am so grateful for that time with her. This loss is devastating…such a wonderful spirit. I’m glad she was able to make the wedding. You boys made her very happy. No doubt she will be forever watching over you and your children. Peace be with you all

  12. I met Liz volunteering at our local Animal Shelter. She was enthusiastic, and as we became friends I learned she could do anything. If she didn’t know, she would figure it out. She was very well read, and so many times when I pick up a book I think about long conversations we had about different authors, and the pleasure of learning about our world through reading. She was devoted to her children, and I know was proud of them as they navigated into adulthood, and independent lives. As I read her Mother’s obituary, I could see how so much about her I recognized in both Liz and Katy. I know you will miss her terribly, but are relieved to see the suffering end.
