    My sincere condolances to the family in the passing of this beautiful special lady. I knew Lisa for about 6 years, and she was always happy and never had anything negative to say about anything or anyone. She always had a smile and loved to come play Bunko. She will be truly missed.

    Carl,

    Our deepest sympathy to you and Family. We all had many good times together.

    I knew Lisa from the Foglia Y, where she came regularly to our water fitness classes. Everyone loved her — such an incredibly sweet lady!! When my 92-year-old mother visited and took the classes, Lisa was so kind to her and made her feel so welcomed and loved. She was a gift to us all, and she will be missed so very much.

    Although we’ve only known Lisa and Carl for just under six years, our friendship with them seems to have been for a lifetime. We became very close friends from the first time they stopped by our house and introduced themselves to us. Within just a few months we were off on a cruise to South America together, and then another cruise up the east coast into Canada, just a year ago last fall.We were honored to help them celebrate there 50th anniversary. Our memories of the many things we did together will be with us for the rest of our lives, and will be among our most special treasures. Lisa, you will be missed so much and we know we will meet again someday in the beautiful place you have gone. Life’s journey will always allow beautiful families and friends to be together with our Lord. Until we meet again, our friend, our love will be with you.

    Dear Carl.
    Lisa was such a kind and fun person when we had our Bunco group. We missed her when she moved, but know that she loved and enjoyed being with your grandchildren and children. My prayers are with you to give you strength during this hard time. from Adele
