There are no words that describe how terrible it is that this wonderful woman is no longer among us.
You were an example for everyone and you also cared for everyone. Everyone knows you as a great woman and now you are no longer there.
We wish her friends and family a lot of strength in this difficult time.
Heaven has received another star and unfortunately way too early.
This is what Lizzie's daughter told everyone yesterday:
I wish I could phone you all personally, but I’m so sorry to say that our wonderful Mum, wife to Roger and friend to hundreds of people, passed away suddenly last night.
There are so many people who knew Mum and loved her and this is the most difficult thing to have to tell you like this, but it has to be.
We are having to wait till next week for her to be returned home to Scotland as she died whilst in Durham to attend a funeral.
We don’t have any funeral plans in place and my Dad and I would appreciate the time and space to come to terms with Mum’s sudden death and to make the arrangements.
Please understand that not everyone will be able to attend the service in our small town crematorium, so we may have to arrange a celebration of life later.
I will keep you as informed as I can.
Please look after each other, hug, cry and share all the good memories....it would be what Lizzie would want.
As she would say ‘What’s for ye will no go by ye’. Keep your chin up.
