Kailyn Mary Elizabeth Morris, born 3/9/13, 8:35pm She looks just like me as a baby. I miss you Mom. I believe wherever you are, you were watching over her. Love you always

Vanessa on Jan 18, 2013

Happy Birthday mommy! I love you!

Vanessa on Dec 29, 2012

This has got to be the hardest for me to deal with in my life right now. The first year without you here has been tough mom. I wish so much for you to be here so I can hug you and not let you go! Mom understood me best and I miss her for that as much as anything. I miss everything about mom, even when she got under my skin, I couldn't help but love my mom. I wouldn't trade my years with my mom for anything and mom will always have an extra special place in my heart. Wherever you are now mom, I know you're in a better place and at peace. I miss you always. Love you, Your Sweetface

I've been thinking of my mom a lot. I miss you so much mom. I miss all the good times we spent together. We are having a little girl, her name is going to be Kailyn Mary Elizabeth. Mom loved Peanut and was so excited and still asking about her even being sick. Love you Mom!

I was so aorry to hear that Elizabeth had died. I was unaware of her illness and word of her death got to me just after the fact of the services for her. I would surely have been there to "see her off." I know that she is at peace now, and I also know the road to that peace was not always easy. Condolences to all who knew and loved her. Time does heal. Nancy Homes

Very sorry to learn cousin Liz passed away. I so enjoyed her visit about 1980 for the Steele-Irwin reunion at our farm near Lodi and wish we'd had other opportunities to get together. Sincere sympathy to all the family. Patti.
