Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement.
Elizabeth (Lizzy) was born August 12, 2009 in Murray, Utah. She is the youngest in our family, with six older siblings. She is the joy and love of our family! She has always been healthy, active, happy, and full of spunk and personality. She plays the violin and enjoys ballet. She loves her pet rabbit and playing with friends. She looks forward to her baptism into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints this August and loves primary. She enjoys skiing, swimming, jumping on the trampoline, swinging, playing board and card games. She loves traveling especially to the beach. She is especially close to her mom and dad with whom she has a very close relationship. She loves giving hugs and writing love notes to her parents. She is our little angel. We love her so much.
On May 6, 2017, Elizabeth was diagnosed with a very rare brain stem tumor called Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG). The tumor has also spread into her spine. We are so grateful for the outpouring of love, empathy, and service shown by family members, our church congregation, friends, and neighbors. We feel so blessed to have Elizabeth as our daughter and will cherish each day we have with her. We know and have faith that families are forever and whatever the Lord's will is for Elizabeth, we know we will see her again after this mortal life.
