Memories Timeline


  1. Jake, Weezie and all the Lowe family, I was so sorry to miss the service for Liz at NHCC. Would love to have been there. Liz was a wonderful friend for many years…..NHCC, the Badminton Club of New Haven, SABIC, meetings at her cottage in the summer time. A Fourth of July party there too. I feel most fortunate to have several of her paintings in my home. My condolences, Ginger Broadbent

  3. We were so sorry to hear about your mom. Although we never met her, we feel like we knew her from all the great stories we heard about her, the beautiful art work she did and her lovely beach house that we enjoyed. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Love, Marianne and Mark
