A beautiful life cut short.

I am still in disbelief, that I can't just pick up the phone and call you or catch you on teams. You were a great encourager to me. You were a great asset to every level I was in the agency. Your jokes your little encouragements, the tacos that you sneaked in, the snacks. You were always one of those that I can freely talk to. You were one of those that I did not need to have a filter on.

In one sense I am glad that you are with our blessed Lord, but the void you left is quite huge. Words can I do justice for my gratitude for your Life and legacy. You will be dearly missed.

I didn't really know Liza. I only played an online game with her, along with hundreds more. She has touched the lives of many people throughout the world through her kindness and sense of humor in the game. It is really sad this has happened to such a sweet person! My deepest condolences to the family and friends!

I will always remember you bragging about how my mom would make you home cooked meals and you'd tell me she loved you more than me. You'd say, "Better make room for me because I'm moving in and I'm getting all the entomatadas I want." Truth be told, I never had entomatadas until that day my mom made them for you. You had the biggest smile from ear to ear knowing you were spoiled this way by my family. My brothers became yours, my uncles, my grandparents...you knew you were family. You knew it so much you would come over even if I wasn't there and you'd hang out with my family. I would show up and you'd smile telling me..."Oh yeah, I was waiting on you." So many memories rushing at 100mph, it's hard for me to pick just one. The only one that comes to mind is how you were family to me. You were my sista' from anotha' mista' (remember, we'd always greet each other like this?).
Fly to the highest...be free to the fullest, but when you get a chance...sneak out of heaven for a little bit and visit us. All of us. Rest in heavenly peace my friend. You'll never be forgotten. Ever.

Elizabeth was such a shining light at Health and Human Services. Everyone wanted to work in our Rockwall office and I know it's because they wanted to work for her. She will be missed so much by her work family. Our deepest condolences to her parents, her husband, and her children.

Elizabeth:
You are gone too soon. We never said good bye. Our last words on August 2nd were see you Friday. I can barely imagine what a loss this is for your family. I was privileged to have worked with you when you became the supervisor of the Rockwall office. You always had a ready smile and a good morning. A few months into your assignment most of the staff was sent home to tele-work due to COVID. Many days it was just you and I in the office. We shared stories of family and your love for your family was undeniable; we shared stories about our faith and our strong belief in God and the trust we have in His will for us and we agreed to disagree on other topics. I will miss your stories about your family; stories about your gamers; your singing in the office; your shouting I need a cup of coffee and what are we eating today Ms. Dempsey. I thank you for the confidence you had in me and challenges you threw at me. You once told me not to work for you but with you. You trusted me with responsibilities that gave me opportunities to show what I got and allowed me to develop more under your wings. At times we may have ruffled each other's feathers but you made me feel comfortable to speak my mind without fear of reprisal. Thank you for making a better employee and person. I miss you!
Good bye, Elizabeth. I wish you God's speed. May you enjoy His continued blessings in your next life.
