Joann and Patricia, Everytime I have seen Lisa or thought about her I have been amazed of how she never changed from the little girl she was when y'all lived in Minter City. I remember the sweet smile she had back then and her sweet spirit. Of course she was too young to hang out with Tricia and me...because we were soooo much older! But she grew up and I loved calling the bookstore and coming by...sometimes just to see her beautiful smile! I am so sorry for the loss of Lisa! I love you and will pray for your peace and comfort! Jeff, Jessica and Andy, I am so sorry for your loss. I pray for peace and comfort for each of you! Lisa was a beatiful person and will be missed!
