I am so very sorry to hear about her passing. I am praying for her comfort and healing for family during this time of loss. My daughters and I enjoyed getting to know her and hearing her fascinating stories about her work with the FBI years ago. She was funny, a straight-shooter, generous, and a wonderful hostess. We enjoyed spending time with her in Savannah and at Cocoa Beach. She will truly be missed.

We are so blessed to have known Libby all these years. A charismatic leader and dedicated public servant who epitomized the values and ideals of the Bureau, she was a beacon of inspiration and integrity whose light shone brightly on all who knew her. The words "rare" and "special" come to mind when trying to capture the essence of Libby. While we are all made lesser by our loss, heaven has been enriched beyond measure with a new arrival. May flights of angels sing thee to thy rest sweet girl. Our thoughts and prayers are with Dewey, Lori, Angee and the rest of Libby´s family through this difficult time. With love, Carole & Mark
