Liz Wallace, I love you and you'll be missed

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Lane Realty Eatonton, GA Lake Sinclair, Milledgeville, 706-485-9668 GREC# 169695

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.

Thank you for posting this.  I spoke to Liz once, or twice, and I forgot why.  But, I do recall the basic conversation was very pleasant and I loved her edge.

It's like we lose a little piece of our family when we lose a member here. I know anyone who interacted with her knew what a great lady she was.  I'm so happy I picked up the phone that first time and took our friendship to another level.

I didn't know Liz well, but enough to feel your sorrow at losing a great friend. Life is short; it seems that Liz lived it well.

Omg, Tammy Lankford, I'm so sorry to hear this ... I smiled when I read the word hooligans, and I remember Liz referring to the hooligans... very, very sad..life is much too short.

I was not aware of her here but as a cancer survivor when any type of illness takes someone before its time you feel a sense of loss.

What a shock! I met her once when we held a Long Island meet-up. I'm going to dig up the pictures and post them. She was very nice.

Jill Sackler  are you on facebook?  If you make them a public post there and tag me, I'll tag her page so her family can see them.  I'm sure they'd love that.
