In the words of George Hess:
My beautiful, wonderful, caring wife Elizabeth, has gone on to be with our Lord and Savior. She had a heart as big as the moon, cared deeply for me her husband, children, sisters, brothers, and grandchildren. She was unique and rare with an array of talents, the golden touch, beautiful smile and so high class. She loved to travel, especially out West. The Lord gave me the perfect gift in my life with her. She will never be replaced, she was my wife, my best friend, my lover, my motivator, my life.
God needed another angel in heaven, I will miss her tremendously.
