Liz has gone home to the Lord

Henry: I know Liz has touched many lives in her constant updates and blogs ever since she began her adventure. While we are sad to see her go, we know that at last she no longer has to suffer and has returned to her real home where there will be no more tears and sadness. She left us on Thursday evening Oct 6th, 2011 in the hospital around 7.20pm after being too weak to withstand what was supposed to have been a simple tapping exercise to help her in her breathing.

I have lost my friend, my lover, my confidante in this world but I know that we'll meet again soon. Truly, "Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?"

In her last days she was getting a bit incoherent and finding difficulty focusing but she did manage to start one last post which she never finished:

"Feeling unwell

I am now currently  experoieng (sic) sickening. Hamir expected that my voice would be recover soon. Praise the Lord! 

I thank my relatives and friends who visited"

Always faithful to the end. Liz, we love you and miss you and look forward to seeing you again.

Henry, Nic and Ethan

  1. Henry,

    I am Anthony Chia from Singapore. I am saddened to hear of this final news. Please accept my condolences. It must have been very difficult for you too, in Liz’s months of struggle.

    May the Lord continue to be gracious to you and help you through your period of bereavement. May the Lord grant you strength to man the affairs of the family now that Liz has gone home with the Lord. May the manifest presence of the Lord be experienced by you in this time.

    It has been my privilege to have known Liz, even when it was only through the internet. Liz has been steadfast to the end, trusting in the Lord. Liz’s end of journey here marks the beginning of another phase of her Kingdom living with the Lord. I am saddened that a friend has departed from us, yet I have the faith she is now with the Lord, contented. May she smile on us, as we continue in our journey.

    (Liz, be there to welcome me, when it is my turn to come. Even though you have not seen my face, I have faith you will know me when I come).

  2. Hi Henry,

    I am really sad to hear of the news. Although I only met her about a year ago, we have been in constant touch with each other supporting each other as cancer patients.

    I have lost a friend and also a supporting mate.

    May god gives you and your family the strength to overcome the situation.

  3. Henry,
    Sorry i was late to worship lead at the Memorial Service for Liz. I know Liz will forgive me as i am usually late on most fridays when we met for bible study meetings.

    I wish i could share the happy moments we shared in memory of her but i couldn't do it without crying. I couldn't cry last night as well. It seemed so surreal.

    Then i read Matthew 5:4
    Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.

    It's ok to cry.

  4. Dear Liz,
    You have touched our lives in more ways than one. You have inspired us to be more than what we think we are able to do. You have loved us and by doing so made us simply a better person. I want to thank God for crossing our path. You will be truly missed.

  5. Henry,

    Liz has been such an inspiration to all of us. To see how she experience God through her adventure, has inspired all of us to want to want God like she did. She ran a good race, right to the end, giving glory to God. Her last sms to me said, All this for the glory of God. I am filled with so much joy that it must be the Holy Spirit in me. That says so much about her. Right to the last night in hospital, when she was weak and breathless and in discomfort, she was still concern for me asking me whether I was tired, bored, and even encouraged me to chit chat with other patients. This is will my memory of Liz. Always thinking of others. Always sweet and gentle. Always holding firm to God right to the end. Always loving and caring.

    She has touched lives of many through her life and her death. We will miss her dearly. One day, we will all have a wonderful reunion.

    Henry, Nic and Ethan, we will walk alongside with you.

  6. Henry,

    Claire and I are thinking about you, Nic and Ethan during this difficult time.

    Liz is home with Jesus and she wants us to celebrate for her victory. She was a wonderful wife, an amazing mother, a royal friend, and most importantly she was a great Christian.

    I feel extremely lucky to get to know her.

  8. My first time to visit this blog. I was searching on Google for a comment on Jacob's speckled flock and this blog pulled up... I was blessed by the sharing that was done by Liz. What a blessing, her work continues to speak for her. I did not know Liz but I feel like I knew her. So glad I visited this blog today. I pray that God will continue to bless her family and prosper them and that they will become exceedingly prosperous like the Jacob Liz blogged about. Blessings.
