    Always enjoyed talking with Lizzie. She always had a smile and enjoyed the talks especially when she would sprinkle in a little German to make you stop and think, and then comes that laugh of hers knowing she caught you off guard. Will always remember those times. Our thoughts and prayers from my family to yours. Ken Hoebelheinrich
