To the family; thank you for sharing her with us. She laughed, cried, and shared good times with us. She was a friend, a leader, and a sister in arms."

"Lissy was my childhood friend in Vega Baja, Puerto Rico. Her family went to my Dad's church and we were so close. I still remember us sitting together in church, giggling and just being happy. The last time I saw her, I was 15 and I still remember that day. I was sooo happy. Never imagined it would be my last time with my beautiful friend, Lissy.

Rest in peace, baby. I will always remember you.

Love always,
Zulma"

"A a familia de Lissy,

Esta es Zulma Feliciano, de Vega Baja. Todavia me acuerdo el momento de la noticia. Yo estaba en mi casa en Florida y senti que se me desgarro el corazon. Inmediatamente me acorde de la ultima vez que vi a Lissy. Yo tenia 15 anos. Fue en una iglesia en Lowell, Mass. Hacia como 3 anos que no nos veiamos, y ese dia fue tan especial. Nos prometimos no dejar pasar el tiempo sin vernos. Y jamas pense que seria la ultima vez. Todavia me acuerdo de Lissy cuando eramos ninas en la iglesia de papi, Luis Feliciano. Nos sentabamos juntas y compartiamos tantas cosas de ninas, alegrias, secretos, sonrisas. Ella fue muy especial conmigo. Atravez de los anos,siempre la recorde, pero no sabia donde encontrarla. Si sus padres se quieren comunicar conmigo, mi email es zfeliciano@gmail.com.

Lissy, jamas te olvidare. Que Dios te tenga en su gloria.

Con amor,
Zulma Feliciano"

"Hello to the Robles Family, I was in the vehicle with Lizbeth and all the way to the end of her finial breath. Lizbeth was so supportive of others and wanted to do so many things within the company, to learn and advance for her career. She told me that she missed her mother and we talked often, I was torn that Lizbeth was in the vehicle that day because just before that moment we were laughing about a movie; Shriek I believe. Next thing I remember is that I got up from the ground and went to Lizbeth and Julio to check on them and I knew it wasn't going to be a good day. I stayed with Lizbeth all the way to the end, the medic tried to kick me out of the emergency room but I stayed in their with her, holding her hand. I am sorry that I have taken so long to write but I had to come to terms on my own.

"Robles, You are truely missed. Everyday I speak of you and Tito. Man it really hurt me the day I had to endure the things I saw. Q, Myself, and the Medics were the first to get to respond. When you took ur breath we knew we atleast saved one. But we had to wait on word that long dreadful nite. The trip back to Q-west was the longest trip ever. We thought we lost just one. Till we got the dreadful news once we returned. I still see ur smiling face early that morning. I wish there were more we could have done to prevented this tragedy. I miss you and Tito everyday. Never forgotten no matter what!!

"As I shared with SGT NEGRON, I will also share with you. I was also with you on that dark day and since that day, not one day has passed that I do not think of you and julio. I gave you permission to travel with us on that convoy because you were really upset with the 1st sergeant and you needed to get away from the FOB. I still have that manifest to the convoy and your name wasnt on it because you were never supposed to be there and now I am left with guilt and emptiness inside that will forever haunt my days and nights on this planet. I wish I had said "NO" and I would not be writing this right now but that is in the hands of GOD and who am I to question our creator. When I close my eyes to sleep YOU and JULIO are there and you are there at my waking also. I hear your screams echoing in the nightmares that haunt me. So many images run through my mind of ways I could of prevented this and still you are gone and I can never bring you back home. Please GOD comfort the family, friends, and fellow soldiers who are left behind. My heart goes out to your family with my deepest sorrow and sympathy. May GOD comfort them and may love and peace be with them all the days of their lives. GOD bless you all!

"Lizbeth, my friend, my soldier. So much time has passed since I saw you smile in Korea. When I asked you what you thought of my wife and you told me she was the one, I knew you were being honest with me. When someone said something about my performance as a leader, you said "Dont even try it, That's my squad leader". It stuck with me and carries me forward even in the hardest of times. You are a true hero to me and will never be forgotton. Thank you so very much for being a part of my life. I miss you. God Bless You and Your Family."
SSG Queston Newell of Killeen Texas USA

"This is the hardest thing I have ever had to do. I have known of your passing for several years and it has taken me all this time to build up the courage to write to you. I have so many regrets, I regret not seeing you one more time, holding you once more, kissing your soft lips, and the biggest regret of all, letting things end the way they did. I wish you can forgive me.
My Mom and Dad were heart broken when I told them of your passing. I can still remember the first time you met them and how nervous you were. I found it so funny to see how jittery you were before meeting my parents. I was so used to see you assertive, calm, and collective and not off keel. You reminded me of a school girl nervous before a test she didn’t study for.
I want you to know that you meant so much to me, so much so, that I kept our rings and I asked my wife to wears yours when we got married. I told her all about us and how you would always hold a special place in my heart. She knew how much you meant to me and wears our rings because she would not want it any other way.
I can keep talking to you for ever but will leave you with this, I am thankful to have had a chance to have loved you. I know I will see you again and hope to have you waiting with open arms. I miss you, and the world is colder with out you. Talk to you latter “Corazon”."

"I didn't know Lizbeth but I worked in the Combat Support Hospital she came to in Tikrit. I stayed by her side and cleaned her up and had all my family and friends praying for her to stablize. I left the hospital to shower up myself and when I came back they told me what had happened. I will never forgive myself for leaving her. I still think if I would've just stayed there and kept talking to her she would've made it. My heart still hurts."

"Acabó de descubrir este hecho y se me ha juntado el cielo con la tierra. Sé que ella lo entendería, pues conocía que a fín de cuentas, vivo en mi propio mundo. Mis condolencias a la familia y amistades de Liz. Sé que todos conocimos a Liz de maneras diferentes y quiero compartir la mía con ustedes... Fue en FT. Hood, TX,13th COSCOM, primera asignación de Liz y segunda mía. Yo estaba en CQ y me tocó recibirla. Me recuperaba de una leción en una pierna y todavía cojeaba algo. Ella me preguntó que me pasaba en español (muy para mi sorpresa, pues era la primera persona de PR que conocía allí) y le dije q se me había dormido la pierna, mientras le quitaba el duffle bag de las manos para llevarselo hasta su cuarto y se sonrió conmigo. Nunca lo voy a olvidar... Luego de esto bajo al "day room" y nos quedamos hablando casi toda la noche de la isla, nuestro pedacito de ensueño cuando estamos lejos de casa... Tenía la única habilidad de hacerme reir con casi cualquier cosa.
Un corazón tan noble como el que más lo sea... Nos hicimos super amigos de inmediato... Tantos pequeños momentos llenos de alegría en un estilo de vida tan difícil como lo es el ejército... El primer abrazo durante mi ceremonia de graduación de la "escuelita" de Sargentos (PLDC). Las bromas en el Field, los "limazos" de su 1ra Sargento, quien era especialista en regañarnos a entredientes evitando echarse a reir con nosotros... Como me hacía enojar a propósito, con una sonrisa en su rostro sacandome la lengua en su práctica de Driver's Training... La vez que fuimos a Six Flags, dos horas y media de camino para encontrar que estaba cerrado cuando llegamos y nos regresamos con el mismo amor con el que nos fuimos, JAJAJAJAJA Ay Lizzie, tantas pequeñas cosas y y todos los pequeños detalles que siempre tenías para todo el mundo. Darnos la Coors Light bien frías los viernes despues de pelear al sol todo el día en el Motor Pool. La vez que me preguntaste llena de curiosidad que se sentía brincar de un avión en perfectas condiciones sin necesidad alguna, mientras miraba mis alas de paracaidista y sólo pude sonreír porque no tenía contestación... No sabes como espero que llegue el momento que nos recibas a todos nosotros, tus amigos, en tus brazos para preguntarte: Lizzie, que se siente volar con alas de oro verdaderas como las tuyas.... Sé que vas a sonreir..

El cielo se torna oscuro y llueven lágrimas del cielo, pues hemos perdido el camino. Que logres descanzo con la sonrisa de los angeles,Mientras los que nos quedamos aquí te extrañaremos SIEMPRE...

A TODOS sus amigos y famila mi más sentido pesame y cariños, quiero conocerles, me pueden contactar a WALDEMARMORALES@AOL.COM

"Hey Liz , i know you are in a better place and you are just as happy go lucky there as you were here. I will always remember your optimistic attitude and how i always wished i could be more like that. You always had a kind word and you always wanted to play with my babies. You are missed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I saw Carmen (morales) in Iraq when 546th came out to join us and i thought it was you, i still hadnt absorbed the fact that you were gone, I cried for a while but i know that you dont hurt anymore, you will always be missed but never forgotten mama!!!!"

"Liz was the last person to touch my baby daughter's birthday card before it went into the hands of the postal service. My daughter, Spc Shoshannah Faber, told me that Liz was a really nice gal and would do anything for ya; she asked her to drop her sister's birthday card in the mail for her as she was going on a mission and Liz was going that way. When that precious card arrived, Liz was already with the LORD, and I had the opportunity to share this story with family, friends, and neighbors. God bless Liz's family; you are in our prayers.

"I work at the 228th Combat Support Hospital where Lizbeth and her crew came in after the accident. She was the first female we had received and she was such a fighter and I did not want to leave her side. I stayed with her as much as possible, talking to her and making sure she was clean and her hair nice. I was finally told that I had to go get some rest and I was woken up to the news of passing. It hit me so hard and I felt like I let her down by leaving. I had everyone in my email address book praying for her and they too were sadden. I will never forget her and my thoughts are with you in your mourning."

"Liz, I never met you in person but my brother "Tito" Sgt. Julio E Negron spoke to me about you on Feb 22, 2005. Who was to know that six days later his mission here in the world of the living was over, the next day you went to join him. I guess God has other plans for you guys and I feel better to know that he was with someone he knew. I hope and pray that you are both together and still smiling and laughing. Please take care of my Tito, he was, is and will always be our guardian angel. A la familia de Liz, los acompañamos en su dolor, porque nosotros tambien hemos perdido a alguien bien especial, pero Papadios tenia algo mejor para ellos. Cuidense y que Dios les de la fuerza que necesitan para seguir adelante. Se que eso es bien dificil porque a mi y a mi familia cada dia es dificil porque Tito nos hace tanta falta."

"To the family of Lizbeth I send my prayers to you. I had the pleasure of meeting Liz in Korea. She happened to be my roommate while assigned to the welcome center. Liz spoke to me when no one else did. We also had the oppourtunity to see one another while assigned to 702d MSB, Camp Casey, Korea. She was a confidant and friend. I am honored to have met her. I had the pleasure of seeing her for the first time in 2 years in 2004 when she was assigned to Ft. Carson. I can remember talking to her at the PX and agreeing that we would keep in touch with one another. Liz you will be missed, and I am blessed to have known you.Thank you for being you. I know you are smiling.........."
SGT Anderson of Ft. Carson, CO

"Liz,
I enjoyed getting to know you at Bragg and the conversations we had together. The last time I saw you, I wished you good luck on your journey.. I told you that if you ever needed anything, you could call me. I didn't know you'd be making your final journey, so... now I know that if I ever need anything... I can call on you!

It was an honor to know you.

Good luck in your journey.. and rest in peace!"
