Condolence from Holly Stambaugh on April 29th, 2013 1:04 am

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Uyeda and family,
I am saddened to learn of Lizzie’s death and want to extend to you my deepest sympathy. I first met Lizzie in 7th grade and we were friends through high school. She was a gifted pianist and student and laughed easily at the silly things we used to talk about. She was a good friend and I am very sorry she was taken from you too early in her life. Those of us who knew her will remember a quiet, sweet, kind, and very intelligent woman.

Thoughts and prayers,

Holly Stambaugh
