  • Liza & I with Chindo & Marie Perez and Parents, Mel & Jeanette Contreras… Did you know that we will gather in the home of Liza’s childhood babysitter to continue our celebration? We are so blessed and grateful to The Perez family for their continued loving kindness and hospitality towards Liza and the rest of the family throughout the years. It was a special treat to hang out with them while they toured through NYC when we used to live there. I always knew any trip to Southern Cal meant a request from Liza to go and visit them! They were more like an aunt and uncle… Thanks Chindo & Marie!! PS: We also have Marie to thank for sharing her salsa recipe with Liza; the hot one that so many of us enjoyed over the years… Thanks again Marie!


  • Liza with Uncle Andrew & Cousin Loren Barbosa… Did you know we have Uncle Andrew to thank for Liza’s love of horse back riding and boxing?! Yes, Uncle Andrew’s influence on Liza as a child spread deeply into her adult life. I have probably seen every horse movie ever made and never missed a major fight thanks to Liza’s keen awareness of boxing and MMA schedules… Thanks Uncle Andrew! And for all your warm calls of concern and love for Liza throughout her fight with cancer!

  • Liza in Brooklyn! (April 2017) … pictured with some of our beloved church family in NYC winding down yet another epic ‘Harvest Hang’! Liza had a very blessed time enjoying their warm fellowship, albeit a very long day for her. She had missed her much needed naps on that day. But as usual, she was a total trooper about it… more concerned about the fun of others then for her own needs. She made it a point to try and take a picture with everyone before they left… selfless indeed!
