Chris & Martin's Scrapbook - 2017

These pages were initially created to transfer photos from traditional scrapbooks to the internet in order to both preserve and make the pictures and history available to family and friends. It has become more extensive than I intended. However, I see it as a way to save the details before they slip away.

Liz Wallace  December 7, 1953 - September 21, 2017

memorial service - Houston, TX October 7, 2017

We have been so fortunate to have Liz and Bennie as neighbors. Liz, always full of energy, humor and there for anyone who needed help. In spite of daunting events Liz and Bennie never wavered. We always enjoyed our times together. Chris so appreciated Liz's help, not only caring for horses, but for Liz's knowledge and helpfulness when problems arose. We are so thankful for Liz and Bennie's friendship. We pray for Bennie and all the family to have strength through this most difficult time. Love, Chris & Martin
