Beautiful and sweet Elizabeth,
Your big smile and laughter will always be remembered. Your kindness and loving heart has touched the lives of so many and you will forever be in my thoughts. It was a blessing for me to watch you grow from a baby to a beautiful young woman. Your time on earth was too short but it is a comfort for me knowing you are with the angels in peace.

Linda McConnell says:

Sweet Elizabeth you will be missed in our Sunday school class. You were so great with the students always sharing your gifts. We have been together for four years. Each week I could see you growing. I will miss your sweet smile and helpful ways. I will miss how you spoke with great strength. I will miss YOU! May God Bless You!

Amy Brown Laub says:

I didn’t know Lizzie but I’ve been friends with Gabriel’s mom since pre-school, her children my niece and nephews. I felt the need to reach out with a message of strength and love and my deepest condolences. I cannot fathom the range of emotions your family must be swallowed by in these darkest hours. I pray you all someday find peace again, encourage you to find a support group, and wish that this was all just a horrible nightmare. I also believe with all my heart that their sweet souls are at peace now. I am so very sorry for the loss of your beautiful daughter.

Sarah Reeves says:

An everyday angel who walked among us. I last time I saw you, you were standing outside the cafeteria, between the shade and sunlight. I always meant to tell you how beautiful you looked, I hope you know now.

Jennifer Walker says:

I never got to meet Lizzie, but my daughter Taylor Walker loves her like a sister. Taylor would say that’s babygirl meaning Lizzie. Taylor loved her smile,her friendship and everything. She was always talking about Lizzie. She would say mom, when I was down my babygirl would cheer me up. I’m glad Taylor found a friend like that in Lizzie. She ask me, mom Lizzie isn’t in anymore pain. I told her no she’s not. I had to explain to her she’ll always be in your heart, She’s always watching over you. My deepest condolences to you and your family. May she RIP but NEVER forgotten.

Anya Deimler says:

Lizzie was such a beautiful girl with such a kind heart. No matter what life threw at her she was always there for everyone else. I love and miss you so much Lizzie. Fly high baby girl!

Ira McClimans says:

I may not know her or the family, but as a resident of Plano myself, I give the family my condolences and be in my prayers. May God be with the Family during these hard moments.

Shannon Delaney (Cheyenne's Mom) says:

God’s blessings to all. She left footprints on the hearts of so many people. More than she could ever know.She was so beautiful. Thank you for sharing your daughter with so many. Even in her short time here she truly made a difference. Her memory will live on. May God give you peace in your heart even though there may never be understanding.

Hutch says:

I have managed many people over the years but have only had one special high five. Whenever I was having a tough day I knew I could stop by Pizza. Lizzie would give me a big smile, a hug then we’d do our ridiculous high five and instantly my day was better. She will always have a special place in my heart.

Anna Skrodzki says:

Dear Daphne, Peter and Henry. In such moments, there are no good words to express my deepest condolences…We are so sorry, for your loss…Our hearts go with you. We join in your of grief and sorrow. May good Lord sooth your pain and help your family in those difficult times. Stay strong. God bless you all. – Anna with family.

Jesse and Dawn Lee says:

Our hearts are full of sorry for your family, Dani and Peter. I pray that the precious memories you have of your beautiful girl will sustain you as you mourn her death. Please know that you are loved

Michelle Leyba says:

You will forever hold that place in my heart as my little cousin. Although we couldn’t see each other much, I still thought of you all the time. I will cherish staying up with you at your dad’s or you coming home with me to spend the night and hitting McDonalds first because you were told no. I hope you enjoyed those knee high converse that you loved of mine. Lizzie, let those memories save my tears and express my joy of your life. I love you, and I wish I was there to help when things got tough. Forever in my thoughts ♡

Chris and Mariola Skrodzki says:

In your loving memory Elizabeth,
It pains me to receive news of your passing while traveling on my honeymoon. Although it seems trite to say, the pain that brought you so shall be another testament to the trails of youth and unchained passion. Fair thee well as you shall onward go towards uncovering the final great mystery in the majestic journey of life; trusting that those that you loved and leave behind will be in tranquility, better held together from our loss. “I have heard that death takes us away from ill things, not from good. I have heard that when we pronounce the name of man we pronounce the belief of immortality.” ~R. W. Emerson

Michal Krueger says:

Lizzie, I will forever miss you. You are my best friend and I will never forget you. I’ve never met someone who cared so much about the people around her. You did everything in your power to uplift others. You are an inspiration to me. I will forever strive to care and love others the way you did. Lizzie, you have the most beautiful soul I’ve ever met. Thank you for the time I got to spend with you. Thank you for you consistant generousity to me. I will miss you forever. But I’m happy to know your mind is at peace finally. I love you babygirl.

Sue Seelie says:

I write this with a heavy heart, in memory of sweet Lizzie. She spent time with Jenna, at our house, doing the silly things young girls do. Binge watching shows on Netflix, baking cookies and making a mess in the kitchen, taking long walks because I wouldn’t drive them to Chick-Fil-A. I would always say that “a long walk is good for you girls”. She was so smart, often helping Jenna with homework. Lizzie had grown into a beautiful young lady. She will be sorely missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to you all.

Nicole Dillon says:

Lizzie was a ray of light in my life and many others, and the heart of why I teach. Lizzie was in my P.E. class at Vines and the next year, in my Dance class. I will never forget our first conversation. I asked her about her hair (because it was bright purple and I liked it). She told me that her dad dyed it for her, and I thought that was really cool and sweet too. She told me her dad had purple hair when he went to Vines, and she was so excited her hair was the same. 🙂 We had an awesome connection from there on out. She was such a delightful student and young lady, always so happy, always helping others, and always taking time to talk with me each day at the end of class. I loved our little chats about life and whatever else she wanted to talk about. I am deeply saddened by her passing, and I know many other teachers are as well. It’s just heartbreaking to lose such a beautiful girl (inside and out) so very early in her life when she had so many great things left to do. I will definitely miss sweet Lizzie. May God bless her soul. I hope she is dancing in heaven. Love you, Lizzie.

Megan Wilhite says:

Lizzie you sweet and beautiful girl. You and My daughter had so many plans together, and she can not currently imagine a future that doesn’t hold you in it. No one can. My heart goes out to you, to your sweet family and to everyone who is currently suffering the loss of such a bright light to this world. May love and laughter find you in a world so far away from anything that has ever hurt you. Your smile and your energy were such a source of light in the darkest of places. The sky’s are dim and it has rained all week. Even the earth mourns when such a beautiful presents is lost to this earth. Love to you sweet beautiful child, may your tomorrow’s start a new in heaven far above.

Deanna Sims says:

A beautiful girl with a sweet spirit and disposition.

Gary Pike and family says:

My family and I convey our heartfelt condolences on your tragic loss of Elizabeth. Although we have never met her reading through her obituary made us all realize she was such a bright star. Hopefully the fond memories of her will get you through these dark times . We will continue to pray for your family.

T. M. says:

My sincere condolences for the loss of your dear daughter. May the love of those close to you bring you some comfort at this very difficult time. And may God’s promise of the resurrection give you hope of the time when you can be reunited with her. (Acts 24:15; Revelation 21:3-5)

Sarah Hastings says:

Sweet Elizabeth, the last time I saw you you were a tiny girl dancing and twirling in your grandma Sally’s dance studio. You brought such joy and light to all of us and I was always delighted to have you there. Give Sally a big hug for me and know how loved and missed you are!

Taylor Walker says:

There was never a dull moment when I talk to you. I always saw you in the hallways​ and I always had to hug you. You are such an inspiration to all no matter what life threw at you, you kept a smile. I love you Lizzie. I know you’re up in heaven with Gabe happy forever but you will never be forgot.

Jennifer Richter says:

I am so sorry to hear of your daughter’s passing. My prayers are with you and yours.

Cyndi Griffin says:

Peter, Ed and I are praying for you and your family during this tragic time. No words can bring you comfort, but I pray the special memories of Lizzie will hold you up. It’s been just over a year since we lost Edwin. Time helps but there will forever be a void in a parent’s heart who’s lost a child. Please place your trust in God to hold you close and carry you through the pain.

Maddie B says:

Im not going to say that we were friends, because we never really sat down to talk. But i remember meeting you for the first time at thunderbird and i remember my first impression. When i met you i instantly thought you were beautiful. You had a smile that would light up the room. You were a sweet and caring person with a heart bigger than anyone else i knew. I always wanted to talk to you more but my anxiety kept me from pushing myself. I wish i had the chance to get to know you more. I know things werent the same when gabe passed but im hoping now you guys are happy together. We may not have been close friends but you still touched and impacted my life. I want you to know that we will always remember you as a bright,caring, and loving soul. May you rest in peace.

Hayleigh Breeze says:


I truly hope you know how sorry I am for your loss. I love you so much and am sending all of my prayers and healing energy your way.

Elizabeth will always be a beautiful ray of light, displayed in every sunrise and sunset.

Love you,

Hunter Nordstrom says:


You were my first best friend when I moved here. You are the reason I kept my chin up and survived no matter how many times I wanted to give up. We didn’t talk much in the end, and I regret that. You were the light of my life and I really don’t feel complete without you. Hopefully you are happy and in a better place. I love you forever.

Grayson Harper says:

You never failed to make me laugh, you even made failing a precalculus test sound like a joke. There was never a moment when I wasn’t either laughing at a joke you made or giving you my full attention when you would tell stories or express concerns. I cared so much about you, your thoughts, your life, and the way you thought of me. It was never a bad day with you around, and I don’t think school will be the same next year without you. You were a friend that was always there for me, no matter what, and I did my best to express my gratitude, I just hope I expressed it enough for you to understand how much I care about you. I can’t live with myself​ if you left this cruel world not thinking I was a good friend or a good source of support or advice. I have always, and always will, love hearing your name, just the mentioning of it brings back so many great memories. Only now, those memories are ones that will be forever kept as a final memory of you, the ones most important to your legacy. Now go on, and be free to be once more with Gabriel, and may you two embrace each other with more love and warmth than we bound by living constraint ever can.

mary beth deramus says:

To the family of Elizabeth,
I send my love and deepest sympathy. Losing someone that young is crushing for all. My heart and prayers goes out to the entire family.

Deborah Roberts (Baily's mom) says:

My heart is so heavy and I have shed many tears alongside Baily over the tragic loss Lizzie.
What a beautiful and precious soul to leave our world way to early.
May God’s love comfort your family and fill your hearts with the joy and memories of your precious daughter until you all meet again.
Much love to your family.

Isabea Loftis says:

Lizzie was such a fun girl. When I was a freshman, dance class was my favorite and Lizzie made it better by just being open to talk to. She was also very helpful if I forgot the choreography. Although we weren’t friends, she left a good impression on me and I hoped to see her again. I will definitely think about her from time to time.

Isabella Loftia says:

I will miss her. We weren’t close but she was really nice to me when I was a freshman and she helped me a lot in dance class. I wish I had gotten to know her better.

Abby Cavanaugh says:

When I was 10 years old I moved from Jacksonville, FL to Plano, TX. My dad had gotten a new job. I attended Prince of Peace Catholic School as an incoming 5th grader. On my first day I met Lizzie. I was so nervous. But she welcomed me into that school with open arms. She was so sweet and caring. I remember her and I had our big group of friends. We had our big class field trip that year.. to the Pines Camp. Lizzie and i were both so excited. Her and I stayed together practically during the whole trip. She was my best friend that year. I ended up moving back to Florida after my 5th grade year was over. But I’ve kept in contact with her ever since then. She was such a beautiful soul, so caring and loving. You don’t come across those kind of people every day. She wasn’t selfish – she wanted to give as much of herself to you as she could. I loved that about her. Though I haven’t seen her in 7 years. I still feel very close to her. Her and I were in touch just weeks ago. It’s crazy to think I’ll never see her again. I’m just one of the lives that she touched. She left a mark on me. I will forever remember Lizzie, she deserved the world.

Nicole Forret says:

Lizzie was as beautiful on the outside just as she was on the inside which is so rare. She would always be there for others and knew how to make anyone feel better no matter what was going on. I wish she could have lived 60 more years so she could continue blessing everyone that was in her life and be able to experience all of life’s joys that were waiting for her, but more than anything I hope she is at total peace and is with her friends, family and Gabe and gabwelbear (her teddybear Gabe gave her) whom she always carried to every class at school after Gabe’s death. She will always be loved and memories of her will be cherished. She was always someone to aspire to be like because she was beautiful, kind, funny, and intelligent and more,everything thing anyone could ask to be like, but was oblivious of her beauty She was the closest thing to an angel on earth I have ever seen. I hope she knew how loved she was. Lizzie I love you and always will. I hope I did you justice.

Denisse Alexandra Cuellar says:

I know I’m late, but I didn’t know of her death until after the funeral. I couldn’t handle thinking about it. I didn’t even know she went to Plano Senior until recently.

Lizzie was my childhood best friend. We grew up together across the street until I moved away. Even then she never stopped staying in contact with me. We were silly and goofy with each other and she always wanted to help. I don’t think there was even one day where she didn’t mention the love she had for her brother. I regret not trying to reach out to her when I moved back to Plano. Almost every month I’d think about her but just didn’t make it a priority. We ended up going to the same school and I didn’t even know.
Lizzie, I always called her Elizabeth, only Lizzie when I was scared. We all know she was a beautiful person and I will never stop appreciating everything her and her family have done for me. She’s the reason I am so much better than how I could have been. She was who I looked forward to seeing when I woke up every day of the summer.
Now although the closest thing I have is My memory, I still feel the way you’d hug me tight and I remember our giggles. I remember you texting me about your day even though I lived so far away.
All I can say is thank you Daphne, for raising her to be my inspiration. She was my best friend, and I’m grateful knowing she spent her life caring for others, and always being filled with love.

Isabella Loftis says:

Hi Lizzie. I know we werent close friends but I look up to you and I admire you. It’s been three years to the day and its crazy how I thought of you today of all days. I’d like to think that maybe you dropped by to say hi. You will always remain as this lovely, selfless person. I miss you girl 💜

m. says:

I still have never found someone that even comes close to how spectacular you were. I will carry your secrets to my grave. As you did with mine. I love you, so so much. I beg to God in hope that I get to see you again.
