An Ode to Liz

This is Liz.

Isn't she cute?

She and I moved in together in January 2009. I didn't know her at all at the time (Sister T. from the Institute hooked us up) and little did I know that she would become one of my dearest friends.

She's the eternal optimist, truly kind-hearted with love for everyone, beautiful and modest, hardworking and intelligent, sweet and incredibly funny.

And today, Miss Elizabeth Lee Spring was called to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Cleveland, Ohio!!!

I am indescribably happy for her. I have heard her speak of her conversion many times and felt the strength of her beautiful testimony. She will be a wonderful missionary and touch many people's lives as she is able to share that testimony with others.

I'll be sad to see her go, but happy for what a blessing this will be in her life. At least I get to keep her til Oct. 29! Oh my... what will Oliver do? He will be devastated for a year and a half - Liz is his second-favorite person (after Oma, of course).

Liz, we (Hans, Me, and puppies!) love you so, so much and we're so proud of you and excited for your new adventure. Congratulations!!
