1 thought on “Elizabeth Merton”
I have such fond memories of Elisabeth.I don’t think I ever saw her without a smile on her face.She was very devoted to her family and her sorority sisters.She started out as a client and became a friend.I treasure the earrings I have from her so much and think of her every time I wear them.I’m so sorry that I’m not able to attend her funeral but I’ll be thinking of her and you Harold on that day.I miss her very much.
