Memories Timeline


  1. So sorry to hear of Mary Liz’s passing. Looked so forward to her daily posts, and especially loved running into her while shopping. She will be missed by all. Sending my prayers for Mary Liz. God Bless this special woman. Sandra H Johnson

  2. I met Mary Liz 45 years ago. We used to enjoy daily one hour talks on the phone every morning after we got the kids off to school. We had a lot in common as we shared a father in law , Bruce Hollingsworth, who taught us both how to cook every Cajun dish you can imagine. 
    Mary Liz was so kind and thoughtful but still a lot of fun. We had plenty of laughs…. Some kinda naughty that only two sister in laws could understand. 
    You will be missed dearly Mary Liz as you touched so may with your sweetness and your strength of character. Rest In Peace.
