We are blessed to have had Liza's light in our life. She walked her journey with incredible strength and grace. I am humbled by her example and honored that she was my friend.

Rest, dear girl. You are free of the body that shackled you to pain. You will suffer no more.

Keep a place for me. When we finally meet, we'll raise a glass to love and friendship and our OCF family.

Sandy
