My thoughts are with you this evening. I knew Elizabeth in college--although she was a better friend of my roommate (Beth Perry) than of mine. We all lived in Project Hinton, UNC's first co-ed dorm. She had a car. We didn't. She was our frequent driver on late night meal breaks. I remember visiting her parents' house on Franklin St. & a baby jumping up and down in the first "baby-jump-up" I ever saw, which was suspended in a door way. --perhaps it was her sister's baby? I don't recall. I have often reflected on how much grace it took to be the daughter of the head of Navy ROTC on the UNC campus in 1970, in the middle of the Vietnam war. Elizabeth had that grace. She was fiercely proud of her father and did not hesitate to express that in a time when many of us were very intolerant of anything military. As she moved more into the public sphere, I watched in admiration, seeing the same spunk, feistiness and grace that she had even as a college student. She provided a clear voice for what we should do as a nation, particularly in the area of health care. She always demonstrated her unfailing commitment to her children through whatever hardship the campaign trail, the media or her cancer dealt her. I wish I had known her better. I hope her youngest children will remember the grace and warmth and intelligence she exhibited at every turn, as well as her unfailing love of them.
