Elisabeth was an inspiration to many in the way she lived her life. Although she was beset by many physical difficulties, she had a great attitude and loved the Lord. She longed for the day when she would see Him face to face. While those who knew her will miss her, they rejoice she is with her Savior and walking with Him.
