Lizz made me feel the most love ever possibly imagined. Losing her has made me feel like I've lost myself. I fell in love with her the moment I met her and nothing has changed. The only regret in life I have is not expressing my love more for her to her.

Today I lit a candle for Lizz in a church in Provence, where I 'm staying, and thought about the kind, amusing, articulate young woman David and I had the great fortune to meet, not so long ago. My heart breaks for the the Brynes family.
