Dear Black family.
I feel so saddened to hear about dear Elizabeth's death. We worked together so amicably on the COVC and she gave me many words of wisdom from how to work with difficult women to where sophisticated ladies shop for clothes!
She was a beautiful friend.

To my "little buddy" Elizabeth, thank you for all the fond memories, support and fun we had at the cottage. You were a very important part of my life and the one that introduced me to the "love" of my life. You were the best! So... as we always said " see you later alligator".
