Never had the honour of meeting Liz, but have seen her posts since my first day here.

To me she was always part of the spirit of the board and always will be, I hope she's enjoying the next life and smiling on you all.

People often say someone was taken to soon, I prefer to think that they lived large enough to never be forgotten.

I wonder if things had gone differently all those years ago if I could have saved her from this fate. She had some underlying issues, a bit of botched dental work and the untreated stuff made things worse. Pain and depression mixed with alcohol made her erratic at times, she would often bite the hand that fed her. But she was more than the sum of her damages. She could be a truly beautiful person, that's who she really was under all the damage- a beautiful person. I'll never forget the first time I talked to her. I called Mayhem and he said "Hey want to talk to Liz?" We talked for four hours. Our next few conversations were just as long.

A few months later I flew to Rochester and met her for the first time. At the airport she sprinted ahead of the rest of her delegation and leapt into my arms in the terminal. Tony snapped a couple pictures. The next four days was basically booze fueled PDA's for the two of us. On day two we were supposed to hop a train to Niagara Falls and get married. But we started drinking at breakfast and sometime in the early afternoon she went back to Tony's to "have a sleep". I went to wake her up a couple hours later and just ended up curling up next to her in bed. The trains had stopped running by the time we woke up and it never happened. A couple days later I left town still a single man. She cried and begged me not to leave but I did. Our lives went different ways from there but I never fell out of love with her. We were never out of touch for more than a couple months at a time. I can't believe how much this hurts. Love and miss you Babydoll.

Agreed. Touching words. Thank you for letting us in, Brian.

Touché, Liz. Keep all those drunks in line, my friend.

I came to the conclusion a few years ago that I had to cut back, big time, because I wanted to see my kids grow up and become adults. And I have, for the most part, done that.
I started typing the same post the other day but took a pass on it. I feel lucky to have a wife and kids who look forward to seeing me when I get home. It's probably the urge to take care of them and the sense of responsibility I feel towards them that helped me keep it under control. I could go at it pretty hard almost every night, but realistically I can't, so now I don't. Essentially I hope I've found a healthy balance among it all because basically, there but for the grace of God go I.

So RIP, Liz

and thanks, RickFred

i know i said this after mayhem passed but lemmy, liz and tony were the first dd i ever had here. they were all drunk up in rochester and i was drunk down here and i thought, "damn, these are good people and i belong here with them."
i got to meet them at the third rochester invasion, i fell in love with these people and this board even more and have considered you all my family for the better part of a decade.
it kills me when the valkyries swoop down and collect us up to valhalla but i have faith that when my ragnarok comes, i will be at the table with all my lost friends and they will introduce me to new friends i haven't yet met.
we are the sum of our losses.
it's all good in the woods, nobody hears me when i scream.

Liz will be missed by many, and I will be praying for peace and acceptance in the hearts of those who knew and loved her.

I believe it was Liz who coined the phrase "Year of the Suck".

i know her family hated mdm and us by association but i wish there was some way without inspiring outrage that we could let them know how well loved she was and how sorely missed she is and how positively she affected so many of our lives. her posts, her smiles, her calls (even the crazy ones) and everything else. pretty blonde girl in a summer dress. always.

Her dad, stepmom, and uncle picked up her stuff today. Dad said he wasn't really surprised when he got the call. Funeral will be in New York on Saturday, but I didn't get any other details.
