So sorry to hear this news about Liz - K4GHT.  I heard her on the air many times from up in Michigan, but never had the pleasure of having a QSO with her. 

Last year at the Orlando Hamfest, I purchased a Misner Signal Shifter that had her call letters inside.  I guess it was part of sizing down.   

I have heard for many years now that she was having health issues, but I guess now was her time. 

Wishing all her friends all the strength possible as they mourn her passing.
