    Feeling very sad that we did not connect until now.
    Lisa is definately at peace now and can be with her Daddy now.
    Lisa was always a joy to be around and her smile did light up the room.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. I graduated with Lisa, I really didn’t know her that well but what I did know she was well liked and was always with a smile. May God carry all of you through this time. I have lost a lot of wonderful people in my life. My faith and trust in the Lord has given me peace with all the losses.

    As we Irish like to say, may the road rise to meet you, may the wind be ever at your back, and may God hold you in the hollow in his hand. God Bless you, Lisa.

    God Took Another Angel Home.
    You laid there in that hospital bed, you tried so hard to hold on.
    God was calling you home. He needed another angel to help pour out the rain.
    Tears have fallen, hearts were shattered, but it was time for you to fly home.
    Your loved ones came to say their last goodbyes, to tell you that they loved you and that you will be forever missed.
    As your heart beat stopped, and your eyes slowly closed, God took another angel home.
