    My Dearest Lisa
    I’m so sorry to hear you are no longer here with us but I know your spirit remains close. You’re resting now in the arms of Jesus, free from sickness, pain and worries. Somehow that only helps my heart ache just a little less. Thank you for always being such a great friend over the years. I have such fond memories of our times together. I can still hear your laughter. You won’t be forgotten! I love you, Amiga!
