She brought joy to anyone who crossed her path and believed that you should always leave someone better than you found them. Lisa cherished life and realized that each day and minute were on loan from her Heavenly Father. While she was on this side of Heaven she felt her mission was to share love and joy with anyone around her; which she did every day. Lisa may be gone from our daily lives, but she will always be a part of those who knew her because of the footprints she left on our lives.
