I was very sorry to hear of Lisa's passing. We were classmates from 4th through 10th grade, and I remember her cheerful personality and her love for horses when she was younger. My sympathy to her family.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Lisa was one of the sweetest ladies I ever knew. She always made me feel good about whatever situation happened. Prayers to the family and especially to Dina who was a classmate of my daughter.

My heart breaks. An end to her suffering provides solace, however I will always want her back. Lisa and I are cousins, she was a delight to me and I know anyone who knew her was blessed. My condolences to all who loved her.
