  6. I want to express my sorrow at the death of your dear loved one, Liz. Liz was a wonderful friend of mine and we became that way when she worked at our hospital in Oakes, ND and have been a friend ever since by writing letters, e-mails or calling. I want to tell you, Terry and Taylor that I am praying for her and both of you. I tried calling you today but couldn’t get through. I would really like to talk to you both but I understand if you can’t at this time. Maybe in a few days you can. God be with you during this ordeal and give you strength that you will need. I just couldn’t believe that this happened when I heard it. Somebody called a Sister and told he and she told me and again today somebody from the Oakes Hospital told me when I called about something. It is just like a dream and I know that is probably what it feels like to you. So I pray for all of you during this time and ask God to be with you and will pray for you during these next days. God Bless you! Sister M. Dianna Hell.

  7. So sorry for your loss. I worked with Liz years ago at the Halstad Living Center and would see her now and then over the years. She was always a kind soul and she will be missed.
