    Our most sincere condolences on the passing of Aunt Elizabeth.

    When I had visited with Aunt Elizabeth at Marsh View, I was immediately struck by her southern charm and hospitality. She was the true epitome of a lovely southern belle.

    I will never forget how her eyes lit up and sparkled when I asked her how she and Uncle Ward met, and she told me their story.

  3. Rita and Bo George says:

    Ward, Harriet, and Family,

    I remember Aunt Elizabeth, always adorned with
    her jewelry and southern graciousness,
    sharp as a tack.
    She was always beautiful, always interesting.
    May you be comforted by happy memories.
    She will be missed.
    God bless.

    Dear Ward, Harriet , Billy and Family,

    I received Ward’s note Monday afternoon. Sorry to hear of your sadness. I have many fond memories of Miss Elizabeth and Mr. Red, especially regarding Harriet, going back 57 years. She was a gracious and a wonderful friend. Glad you have the Bluffton memories to cherish.
    Very sincerely,
    Herbie and family

    Mrs. Lariscy, or “Granny” as my dear friend, Carol called her, was always so gentle, sweet and most definitely a true Southern Belle. To live to be 101 years old only says that God wanted us to enjoy her for a very long time.

    My thoughts and prayers to the family.

    Roz
