Elizabeth’s Memorial Service was held on September 30, 2012, in her home town of Milton, Massachusetts, in the intimate setting of St. Michael’s Episcopal Church. Many called the service “life changing” and “transformative.”
Before she died, Elizabeth carefully scripted her close family and friends to express exactly what she wanted her service to be. Most of all, she wanted people to feel uplifted and to be given not just permission to carry on, but marching orders to do so! She requested that laughter be present, selected all the music to be played and quotes to be read. Her focus was to convey how much the love of family and friends had meant to her in life. “The well is deep. There is no limit to love,” she had said.
