  • Mary Elizabeth and family: About 35 years ago, I lived next door to your Mother and Dad. I was married to Jim Riggleman then and we had a little girl named Robyn. One day in the summer, when she was about 2, I couldn’t find her! I looked everywhere in the house and ended up outside yelling and practically in tears! I heard your Mother call out to me to come over. There was a hedge between the houses, but you could get through it. Anyway, I went to your back door and there was Robyn, sitting on your Dads’ lap and eating pretzel sticks! She called them Grandma and Grampa Sasser from that day on. Sorry for my long story, but I just wanted you to know how special they were to me and my daughter. We are both so sorry for the loss of your Mother. Heaven has truly gained another angel.

  • God Bless you, and my Love and Prayers are with you all. Elizabeth I will truly miss you. Thanks for our talks and the time we were able to share. I only wish we had had more of them. Rest in Peace Dear.

    With All My Love,


  • Elizabeth was such a sweet and thoughtful person. Every Christmas I received a carefully written personal card–including last Christmas. I will miss her special message every year.

  • Mary Elizabeth and Rickie, wish I could be there with you at this most difficult time. I will miss a truly wonderful sister. I wish I could have told her “I love you” one more time.

    I love you both and know that I am praying for you at this time.

    Love, Aunt Del

  • Aunt Elizabeth was a good, strong woman. She spoke her mind, had a good heart when you needed her and could just about fix or do almost anything around the house.

    I remember her before the cancer took hold as a strong, sassy, no holds barred woman who loved her family more than anything.

    I will miss seeing her in Frankfort on my visits and at our family functions and will truly miss hearing all the stories of the family that she loved to tell, especially ones of mischief about my dad and all the brothers and sisters when they were growing up.

    Rest in Peace, Aunt Elizabeth. Love you, Susan

  • I will miss the best mother-in-law ever. She will always be in my heart. She has been my friend for over 40 years. She took care of us when we lived with her, we always had a wonderful time in her company. I take comfort now knowing there will be no more pain, she is resting in peace. My love to Mary Elizabeth & Rick.

    Your daughter, Vickie
