We would like to thank all of those at ARCH for all their tremendous help and friendships, along with the wonderful volunteers including Dekland the sheltie puppy. Most importantly we want to thank the other patients and their families for sharing their friendships while we all dealt with this sad journey.

A truly special thank you to the V.O.N. “Wednesday gang” that Elizabeth was a part of for a number of years and a huge thank you to volunteer Debbie for the extra special friendship. A huge thank you to her close friends and her casino friends for the love they have given her in her life.

Lastly a thank you to the staff of WE CARE, and the doctors and nurses that have taken care of Elizabeth over the years and the gals at Tamar’s Trends for their love and support.
