Elizabeth Ann “Liz” Hewitt
Elizabeth Ann “Liz” Hewitt
Home city: Kincardine, ON
Date of crash: December 6th, 2008
Deceased: December 10th, 2008
Liz was a passenger on a snow mobile driven by a suspected impaired driver. She was killed violently at the age of 43. She left behind a 13 year old son, a 21 year old daughter, a loving “nana”, her Mom who loves her dearly, two sisters who were her best friends and her “little” brother..as she called him. We will always love you Liz, you are forever in our hearts. There may be the odd second in a day that I, her Mom don’t think of her or cry for her.
In September of 2008, Liz became a Grandma for the first time. We had a five generation family picture taken and it was published in our local paper. Oh, how she was beaming with pride that that photo. Sadly, she will never know her grandson.
Liz was the most beautiful person, inside and out. She loved all living things…her children, first and foremost, her animals and her flowers. She gave with a generosity that few people have. Liz would be there to help anyone with anything. She was also humble. If she were to be thanked for one of her many kind deeds her response would be “Oh, it was nothing, no big deal!” That is exactly what she would be saying to the three grateful recipients whose lives were saved by her wish to be an organ donor. Yes, right to the end, she continued to help others. Anyone who met Liz, even for a minute would never forget her. Her outgoing smile and bubbly laugh brightened any room. She was a bright shining angel here on earth. Of course no one could miss her beautiful, golden locks of curls.
Liz was also a hard worker. If she wasn’t fixing one of her vehicles she could be found building a kitchen or a bathroom but would drop everything in an instant if someone needed her. Flowers…she loved her garden, she nurtured every growing plant and flower there and amongst her garden she always tenderly placed cherubs and angels. She was so artistic. She decorated her home with love and pride.
My Sweet Liz
A million times I’ve needed you
A million times I’ve cried
If love could have saved you
You never would have died
Things we feel most deeply
Are the hardest things to say
My sunshine girl, I love you
In a very special way
If I could have one lifetime wish
One dream that could come true
I’d pray to God with all my heart
For one more moment with you.
Love you always, Mom
