Dear Lisa, Andrew and family,

We are very sorry to learn of the loss of Lisa’s Mom. We always knew he to be upbeat and friendly. We lit a candle and said a prayer for her and your family yesterday in church. My dad, (her uncle) also passed away at 73 years of age. Your mom was a very beautiful person.

She is with the Lord. We will keep her and your family in our prayers.
