I'm sitting here at my office with tears running down my face. 5 years and 6 months ago today was the first time I picked up the phone and dialed Liz. I know we were on the phone for a couple of hours. I'm just heartbroken to read her daughter's post today about her passing. If you didn't get to meet Liz here in the rain, I'm so sorry. If you did, then you knew a really great lady who will be truly missed. I was also friend with Liz on Facebook and saw her daughter post today she had passed.
Her daughter wrote:
It is with the heaviest of hearts that we announce the passing of our mother Elizabeth Wallace. She fought a good fight and leaves behind so many that love her dearly. She was an amazing mother and even better Nana to her 10 granchildren. There will not be a day that goes by that we don't miss her incredibly. We hold on to the memories we have and will continue on in her fashion. Strong & always up for a laugh.... <3
We will celebrate her life with a memorial mass this Saturday, February 25th at 10:30 a.m. at St. Agnes Cathedral in Rockville Centre
One of my favorite things to ask her when I'd call was "how are the hooligans?" That was her term of affection for her grands. I am going to miss her so much.
