On July 30, 2012 this world suffered a tragic loss. In the blink of an eye, so many lives changed forever. A wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend – full of life, energy, joy, love and promise, along with her three children, were delivered into the waiting arms of God. Though our world is and will remain forever empty without them, Heaven adds to its ranks the joyous sounds of happy children and the ever present love, joy and devotion that only a mother, wife and daughter can provide. Mother - Elizabeth Anne Dowdy, age 25, and her three children Fischer Phillip Dowdy, age 3, Benjamin Samuel Dowdy, age 2, and a perfect soul that was yet delivered into our arms, have begun their new lives with absolute certainty, joining many loved ones who have made the journey before them.
