To the Stephens and Derrickson Families. My heart is broken upon reading the paper today. I have known Elizabeth for over 20 years, she was like a daughter to me. I met her at the Norfolk Admirals games and our friendship developed from that. I also know her from her working at Dr. Moro' office and Dr. Palting too. Elizabeth was a wonderful nurse with her kindness to the parents no matter what your problem was. I have been send her cards thinking of her and her family. My prayers are with your families and of course Elizabeth will alway be in my heart. God bless her.

There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about you and our fun times together at Nags Head and just going shopping on our many shopping sprees we took. I learned from the best how to get the best deals on things. :- I love you so much and will miss you every single day of my life. I know your in a better place now and aren't suffering anymore and will look after all who love you.

Tears flowed this morning and continue to fall. I met Liz is 1983 and we became friends. She took care of our children at Mike Moro's office and that soon developed into her calling or me calling and she would often come over and we would eat lunch together during her lunch breaks. What a dear, sweet friend she became to me. We shared secrets, laughs and friendship and I had so much respect for her knowledge and compassion as the best nurse I have ever met. Years later, we meet again at Bayside..so wonderful to reconnect; exchanged phone numbers and promised to eat lunch together again. My heart is broken and if I had only known it was our last hug; I would have held on longer. Elizabeth was a wonderful friend and I am a better person for having had the privilege of knowing her. She was so happy and I will remember that she said; "I have the best husband; perfect son and I couldn't be happier" Rest Elizabeth and know that you will be missed and thanks for being my friend.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I was one of Elizabeth's classmates through radiology school at Norfolk General years ago. I remember how much she loved her family and how proud she was of each of them. We went our separate ways after graduation. I saw her again several times as she began her treatment. What I remember most about our conversations together was how her face glowed when she spoke of Sammy and her husband. I'm so glad she had that joy in her life. I am so sorry for your loss.
