Heavenly Father received the greatest gift on January 17, 2019. She has been the bravest sweetest girl that there has been born. Lisa has lived a life full of goodness. She has had a great impact on everyone’s lives that has ever known her. Lisa has loved everyone unconditionally. No one has had a bigger heart. She has always been full of wisdom, love, and light. Lisa has fought so hard to live. She did that for all of us. She never met a stranger and anyone that ever met her never forgot her. She loved her wonderful family. Lisa’s sweet husband of 32 years Tim. Her children and her grandchildren. Lisa has always loved the Lord and she has been closer to him than is imaginable. Nana was the magic work for her.
