Liz Graham was my Granny’s best friend. The two of them would have put Thelma and Louise to shame. I recall several of their exploits from years past as they traveled and shopped together. Liz was an important part of my childhood. I remember her being a kind and generous lady. Some of my best memories from the 1980’s was going swimming at Liz and Harris’ pool. They were so nice to let a little boy bring his big imagination, his boom box, and his action figures to their swimming pool Summer after Summer.
I also distinctly remember a trip to the farm with Granny and Liz on a Friday night to pick green beans. I must have been four or five years old at the time. I would go up and down the rows picking the beans; then we would pull the strings off, break them, and can them. I believe that Liz and Granny enjoyed teaching me their trade and it must have been a great night for the memory to have stayed in my mind these past 40 years.
My condolences and sympathy to the Graham family. 100 years is a long and full life! I will be praying for you during this time. Please remember that although she is gone from this earthly life, Liz will live on in the hearts and minds of those whose lives she touched along the way. As an educator these past 23 years, I understand that the most important thing you can leave for the next generation is a legacy of caring. A person may not always remember everything that you said to them, but they will always remember the way that you made them feel. As a child and even as a young adult, Liz always made me feel special.
It puts a smile on my face to picture Liz and Granny getting in that Lincoln and driving down those streets of gold for a brand new adventure together!
