I knew Lisa when she was a teenager, a neighbor & friend of the family. She was always very sweet and personable, and it's such a shock to learn of her passing. I know she's greatly missed. She's in the Father's care now, and I'm praying for peace and comfort for family members. May you find comfort in the thought of a joyful reunion with her some day.

Dear Harold, Amanda, Ashley and Tessa,
words are not able to express, the husbands and the daughters feelings in those times. You are surrounded by very big and great familiy, let them take care for you. And you have familiy here. We hugh you all. Astrid, Roman & Birgit
I was a co worker and friend of Lisa. She will truly be missed! Lisa was a truly good person (a real rarity) and I want you to know that I am truly blessed to have had her as my nurse, and thank you for sharing her with me for the past years. I want the family to know that the usual quiet and almost shy Lisa when asked about her family would become quite animated, the pride and love as she spoke about you all was both powerful and wonderful. I will be keeping all of you in my thoughts and prayers.
Dear Amanda and family, I am so sorry for your loss. Your mom was a very kind and sweet person. She was so proud of you and always wanted happiness and a beautiful life for you. I know she will always be watching over you. May you feel Christ near you to strengthen you.
Dear Lori, My heart goes out to you and aches for your pain. I wish there were words I could find to ease your suffering. All I can tell you is that your sister will always be with you. Your memories of Lisa have been engraved in your heart forever to make you smile and remember the bond that only sisters have for all of your life. I pray for Christ to stand with you and give you strength and peace.
Ashley, Amanda and Tessa; I'll always be blessed for the time your mom was in my life. Allow our heavenly father to comfort you at this time & lean on Him Take comfort in the knowledge she is dancing with the Angels in heaven and we will see her again.
