    I had been looking for you! I even went and knocked on your door. But your home had been sold. I’m so sorry we never got to say goodbye to each other!
    Love you girl!

    In 1986. Lisa and I met while training at Braum’s in Canyon, Texas. We became close friends. We went on many adventures in Texas and lived together briefly. I remember meeting many of Lisa’s family members in Silverton, Quitaque, and Canyon, Texas. She loved them very much. We drove to Ashton, Idaho, together and worked as truck drivers in the potato fields during harvest. When the harvest ended, I left Idaho and returned home in South Carolina. We lost touch. Lisa really made an impression on me. I thought of her often over the years and wondered what adventures she had been on. She was a free spirit. I miss her very much.

    I’m incredibly sad to find this. I’ve been looking for her for years! We met at the Bellagio, we always seemed to end up eating lunch together. Our friendship was special. Such a beautiful woman inside and out. She was funny, witty, passionate, loving, adventurous, etc. I wish I could’ve found her sooner. I’m truly heartbroken. I’m grateful she was around family when she passed. She loved you all so much. Rest in Heaven sweet lady, I’ll always love and miss you.
