I was saddened to hear the news of our treasured neighbor, Liz Taylor. She was the first to take a chance and hire our boys to care for her lawn. This gave them an opportunity to earn and save money at a young age. We always enjoyed her conversation and her kindness over the years. She was a gem. Our deepest condolences. The Fritz Family from Heather Highlands Pa.
