Death is nothing at all
I have only slipped away into the next room
I am I and you are you
Whatever we were to each other
That we are still
Call me by my own familiar name
Speak to me in the easy way you always used
Put no difference into your tone
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow
Laugh as we always laughed
At the little jokes we always enjoyed together
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was
Let it be spoken without effort
Without the ghost of a shadow in it
Life means all that it ever was
There is absolute unbroken continuity
What is death but a negligible accident?
Why should I be out of mind
Because I am out of sight?
I am waiting for you for an interval
Somewhere very near
Just around the corner
All is well.
Nothing is past; nothing is lost
One brief moment and all will be as it was before
How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again!

Canon Henry Scott-Holland, Canon of St Paul's Cathedral (1847 - 1918)


You have been missed terribly and how very sad I am to have learned of your passing.  Thank you for the gift of your friendship, for the laughs and the jokes, thank you for the honor of being able to connect with your spirit even though divided by a computer screen.  You have been a dear friend and an inspiration, your energy and your spunk brought life to many of my dreary days.  You are not gone, you have other work to do.  Until we meet again...much love to you and prayers for those who also mourn your loss.

I am so sorry for the passing of Liz. I was shocked to hear she passed away. She was a great friend of mine and we shared many interests in common. My deep condolences.

Much sadness in remembering my beautiful cousin who was taken too soon. Many condolences to all family and friends, especially daughter Emily.

Still coming to terms with Liz (my cousin) going so unexpectedly on 25 December 2013.  Although we corresponded and e-mailed we hadn't seen each other for some years but I am so glad we met up again in 2007 when we were holidaying in New York - it was lovely to see her again.  I have happy memories of us as children and teenagers in the UK and will think of her with warm affection and  miss our chatty e-mails across the water.  My thoughts are with the rest of her family and friends both in the UK and USA.

I'd like first to offer condolences to all family. I was and still am shocked and saddened to hear of Liz's passing. In a way I didn't know her well, had met only once several years ago, but had enjoyed infrequent facebook messaging often around topics either of us had posted, or on the subject of music, my profession, and always Liz found the time to write meaningful responses or suggestions. She spoke with great passion about her country retreat away from city life and just seemed a soul with a great love of life and of people. I can definitely say I envy those who got to know Liz better. She seemed to live life to the full, the true measure of life itself. My thoughts are with her family.

Deepest condolences Emily on the passing of your Mum. Liz had a genuine interest and affection for her step family and I always enjoyed meeting her. She had a natural grace; an affinity with the beauty of life and it is so evident in what I remember of every meeting with Liz. From greeting to goodbye she made you feel like you'd been missed, that what you were up to mattered and that you would be missed until the next time. Liz was a great comfort when our Mum, Claire passed away, travelling all the way across the Atlantic to share our sorrow. I'm so sad I can't be there with you for her memorial. Lots of love and strength to you Emily. Fintan xx

Dear Emily,
I was so sorry to hear your Mum passed away so suddenly. I was fortunate enough to meet Liz just over a year ago in New York with Fintan. I warmed to her immediately and I am so sad that I will not get to know her better. Fintan and Noelle have always spoken so highly of Liz. Myself and Fintan are so glad that Noelle was able to be with you in New York this week.  Our thoughts are with you at this difficult time.
