Condolences

  1. My sincere thoughts and prayers go out to Lisa’s family. Lisa was a lovely lady who was a part of our work family at Citibank. Knowing her the way I did at the bank is expertly described in her obituary. She and I spoke a lot about travel, as my family & I loved the secluded cabins, mountains, rivers, etc. And, she loved her fur-daughter, Lexi. Many times on my drive down Texas Avenue on a weekend I would see Lisa walking Lexi near the Walgreens down from her home. I know Lisa is in a much better place, as I know she had many struggles with her health and she deserves to be at peace.

    Sincerely,

  2. Dear Michael and family,
    Words cannot express the sorrow I feel for the loss of your Mother. Lisa was a joy to work with. I loved the sharing of her faith in our Heavenly Father along with the most current fashions and healthy lifestyle Lisa possessed. Lisa’s positive approach she took with her illness and the determination was amazing to witness. Your Mom would make us laugh with her “adventures with Lexi”, that came almost daily. Your Mom was a good friend to me and I thought a lot of her and will miss her very much. May you and your family find peace in knowing your sweet Mom is skipping thru the gates of Heaven to meet our precious Lord and Saviour.

    • Thank you so much for sharing Samantha. Mom loved all her kids including Lexi. She made sure Lexi would be well loved after she was gone. It means a lot to my family that you held our mother in such high regard. We wish you and your family many blessings.

  4. Lisa was a kind and beautiful person. I will always remember her great sense of style and friendliness. I was one of her managers at Citibank and she was always a pleasure to work with. She was always professional and helpful towards her clients. I often told her how photogenic she was. What a great loss to the world. She will always have a special place in my heart and will be remembered for her kindness and love of animals. My condolences to the family. Rest In Peace sweet angel. Until we meet again……
