When I first met Liz (who we called Zed in college). We both stepped off the airplane at the San Jose airport at the same time, I will never forget it. Her flight arrived from Boston and mine from St. Louis. I spotted her right away and was immediately drawn to her bright spirit, I always told her that I recognized her as a soul friend right away. We walked down the escalator together and I watched as she bopped to the music in her headphones. We then ended up outside at the bus stop and struck up an amazing conversation. We figured out that we were both headed to UC Santa Cruz for a wilderness orientation trip. For the next two weeks we hiked through the Sierra Nevada mountains and got to know each other. I thought that she was the most interesting person I had ever met and I still feel that way. She loved music, poetry, art, dance, and adventure. She was a great story teller, always had such deep insight and wisdom, and had the best laugh and smile. She lived life to the fullest. It was hard to keep track of her sometimes as it seemed she was determined to live many lifetimes within her short 36 years. She was a brave and wise woman. So powerful and bright that the earth could hardly hold her for long, her spirit was ready to soar to other realms. She was a true gift in my life and to this earth. Her son Omowale was the joy of her life and will carry her light forward. She is ever present in every beautiful wonder on this earth. Love you always my soul sis*star!

Thank you Katie for this beautiful message and photos. The pictures you took right after Omo was born capture how much my beautiful daughter adored and cherished her son. I pray that you will be in Omo’s life as he grows up so that he will know his mother thru your eyes.

Liz your smile was infectious. From the moment I first held you as a baby till our last visit. You always brought a smile to my face. There just wasn't enough time .Watch over us from above as you soar high and free. These lovely photos are but a brief glimpse of your short time here on earth. You may be gone from our sight but never far from our hearts.God Bless. Love Aunt Colleen

Beautiful pictures of a beautiful person. I remember when Liz and Omo were home enjoying Omo's first snow - wonderful. May Liz rest in peace and may the memories of her light comfort you all. Much love, Tricia

My good sistren Nasheema was a bright soul, mother and gifted artist. I remember going with Sheema, Chris and Omo to the Winchester Highlands during the summer. We wod meditate, reason and enjoy the nature and native ancestral spirits that we all were connected to. I am suggesting that some of her ashes be sprinkled in the reservoir. I give Thanks to the MOST HIGH JAH RASTAFARI for the life and legacy of Nasheema Kufunya!
