Dear Tom and family --
After Liz moved from the suburban Chicago area back to Rochester, we only corresponded at Christmas. She invited me to visit her and your aunt, but I never went. Liz was a delightful person and I thoroughly enjoyed knowing her. Since your mom knew that you and I met for dinner several times when you worked in Cincinnati, she always kept me up-to-date on your life. So sad at her passing but glad to hear she went peacefully.
