My mother recently passed away in another state, with no viewing or any ceremony. I asked my brother and his girlfriend if there was anything that I could do as they were going to meet with the funeral director. The girlfriend said that I could write an obituary to give to the funeral director. This was less than 30 minutes before their meeting! I actually did write a tribute, much to their surprise and delight. I have always been able to put thoughts into words in quick order. That being said, Elizabeth's family was surely caught off guard and may not have had anyone who could quickly pen the words for an obituary. I feel certain that her entire family was extremely distraught and probably couldn't think straight. I sure hope that the police are working diligently on this case to solve it. I just don't feel that this is a random murder. JMO.
