  • We are so sorry for your loss! My heart breaks for you. Her death is a permanent scar, immeasurable pain, we will pray for peace for you. So sorry my friend.

  • This is crazy and so surreal. I’m still in a complete state of shock.
    Lisa is my sister. Even though we had two different dads, she was always my sister. I remember growing up and I couldn’t WAIT for the weekends that Lisa & Maria would come over. Oh the fun (and sometimes trouble wink, wink) we would get into. I always wonder if our “playhouse” is still up on our old Blayney Rd property.
    As way too often can happen sometimes…Lisa and I had grown apart somewhat in our adulthood. But she was, is, and always will be my sister that I love so much.
    I’ll miss you, Lisa.
