  1. In the short time we had together, there wasn’t a day that I wanted to be anywhere else. Thank God Lisa was a character. Neither one of us followed the beat of the masses. Her honesty, humility and respect for another were qualities that I will always associate with her, and will inspire me in my daily life. We shared a love of music that immediately brought us closer together. Most of all, she gave me the gift of her love. Completely. I will be forever grateful to you lisa. For loving me the way that you do. DC Olson

  2. Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. In his great mercy he has given us a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade – kept in heaven for you… – 1 Peter 1:3-4 Our prayers and thoughts of the Forest Hills church family are with you, DC, and all of Lisa’s family. We’re thankful for her life, and we pray for the comfort of Christ for you. – Pastor Robb Redman, Forest Hills Presbyterian Church, Helotes, TX

  3. What a super lady! Your strength thru all the difficult times was truly amazing. I am so glad I was in your life (even as an adopted family member). You are truly missed but all of your friends and family can recall all the happy times that we shared and that helps us easy your loss somewhat.

  4. Lisa, Everytime I think about you now all I see is you with a big smile on your face. Thank You for letting me know you are so very happy. Jo

  5. Lisa, you will be missed greatly. Your perspective on life was inspirational in that life is a challenge to take on. God bless and keep you always. Pablo Martinez

  6. My condolences to you and your family. I knew Lisa since 1992 and from the day I first met her I knew she was someone special. I looked upon her as a friend and co-worker, and looked up to her highly in the business world. God Bless You and your family to fill the void you now feel with your loss and bring happiness into your lives again.

  7. Wanted to say that Lisa was a wonderful person that was always quick with a smile. We had wonderful memories from the Snake River Saloon, Colorado and Lake Travis, Texas! She will be missed! Karin

  8. Dearest Lisa-What a privilege and honor it was to know you. You made every day special for all of us. I will always value the time we spent together working on the ERP project and will always think of it as Lisa’s Special Project. Sadly, we didn’t finish it, but the work we all did together was inspired…by you. Much love always to you. Melissa Kauth

  9. Dearest Lisa, my best friend for over thirty years, you were the most positive woman I’ve ever met and taught me so much in life. Always do onto others as they would do onto you, is what you always what you told me.You raised two wonderful young men, and I was proud to be a part of that, you were always there while raising my son, me being also a single mother, you inspired me to do the best as I could, never doubting me.The music, the trips all the fun that we shared together I will deeply miss but whenever a song comes on, that makes me think of you I have to laugh because there is usually a story behind it. I am delighted that I introduced you to D.C. I know that you wanted to find a special love before you left us and you did, he took care of you, I only wish I could of been there more, but I know you were happy.I will miss you my best friend, thank you for letting me be a part of your life and your family. your best friend cindy flanagan

  10. Lisa, If you were here to teach, you did so well. Your smile alone did so much and continues on to do so. Your everlasting postitive attitude toward life and living has truly changed me and I’m so grateful to you for that. Thank you. I was the lucky one, to have our paths in this life cross. Love you and will always admire what you were to me. Judi

  11. Lisa, You are the person I have most admired in my life. You have been an inspiration to me. I’m very proud to have been a part of your extended family. I love and miss you. You are really an Angel! Love, Sandy

  12. Lisa, although our paths crossed only briefly–I knew from the momemt I met you that you were a wonderful person. I had the pleasure of being in Cindy Flanagan’s wedding (in Colorado) with you, and, yes we did have some fun! I immediately knew why you and Cindy were life long friends, being that all of us are such characters. I know that you will be missed by so many and that you leave behind many great memories. God Bless You,Lisa.

  13. I ONLY MET LISA ONCE AFTER SHE MARRIED MY BROTHER IN LAW DAVID AND I REMEMBER HOW COURAGEOUS SHE WAS EVEN THOUGH I COULD TELL SHE WAS IN MUCH PAIN. SHE WAS VERY PLEASANT AND MADE ME FEEL QUITE AT EASE. I WISH I COULD HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO GET TO KNOW HER BETTER AND SPEND MORE TIME WITH LISA. SUCH COURAGE NEEDS TO BE ADMIRED.
