    Liz fueled my passion for hiking and exploring and this was taken in Acadia National Park in 2016. You know how proud she was of her accomplishments and I will miss her lively spirit and positive energy. Love and condolences to Mike and Calleigh.

    Liz was always so kind and bright.  I admired how much she loved Calleigh.  She was so proud of her, and it was a special kind of pride.  Even though Calleigh has accomplished and experienced amazing things, there always seemed to be a genuine loving,...  more

    Liz and I were born just a month apart, were friends, and then step-siblings by the time we were 7 years old. I remember a lot of times when were were young, but especially when I was 20 and drove to Florida and stayed with her a couple days on my way...  more

    Liz was one of the kindest and most generous people I’ve had the opportunity to meet. Every time I saw her she asked how she can help or lend a hand, and with a smile! I only had the opportunity to know Liz for a short time but I came to learn how big...  more
