Condolence & Memory Journal

Hello to Barbara and David and family. I would like to express our sincere condolences to your family .Dr. Fenol and Rose worked with Liz for many years and she was such a wonderful person to work with. She was always polite, kind, very smart and our years of working together was such a great memorable experience. There was never a time she showed any manner that was displeasing. She became part of our family. My children have such fund memories of visiting her home during Halloween. We will greatly miss her. May she rest in Peace. She is in Heaven enjoying the company of Jesus and the heavenly court,
Liz would always send Christmas cards and pictures of her family to our residence. From time to time we would call and reminisce the days we worked together. We just love her very much.
