Just heard of Liz passing and was so sorry to hear. She was the best trainer and so smart, no one could compare to her. My condolences to family and friends, we have truly lost a beautiful mind.
Deeply saddened to learn of Liz's passing. I received two LIHTC certifications as well as taken many of her online webinars. She was my go-to for compliance answers. She will be sorely missed as she had made her mark in the affordable housing industry. Her name is synonymous with LIHTC. My deepest condolences to Liz's family.
GWEN, ED and all the family, Our thoughts and prayers are with you now and in the days to come. Just want you to kknow we're thinking of you.
My deepest sympathies. We are out of town but wish you to know we heard and will continue our prayers for her and family.

I am so saddened by this news. I recently tried contacting her and was surprised that she couldn’t be reached. I have always been able to reach her for advise on LIHTC or just to chat. She was such a wonderful person to know. She was at my side during the entire LIHTC deal at my agency. She offered her support even after her contract ended with us. Liz was so well known in the LIHTC world. I am so sorry that I did not hear about her passing before now. I hope her family knows just how great of a person she was in her career as I’m sure she was in her personal life. She will be greatly missed. Thank you Liz for everything.
