I'm looking at the glass Eiffel Tower that Elizabeth brought for me in Paris. Such a thoughtful young woman and so accomplished. She never let much of anything stand in her way. I immediately loved her and her family the first time we met. Elizabeth and I usually sat together during Sacrament meeting. We went to the Nauvoo temple together and during the long drive we had the greatest discussions about anything and everything. She was so excited about life in general and even when faced with a huge health crisis she kept her sense of humor and faced difficulty with calm gracefulness. She was an exceptional young woman with an old soul; wise beyond her years. She will be missed by all those who saw her example and took the opportunity to really get to know her. Rest in peace, Elizabeth. Matthew 25:21
