    Ms.Lisa my heart and everyone else’s hearts are shattered. I know you’re in a better place, still doesn’t make it any easier to say “until we meet again”. I love you Ms. Lisa.

    Woke up this morning telling myself that this isn’t real…it’s only a really bad dream…but it isn’t. ? No matter how many ways I turn back time, it spins back to Friday when Jessica called and said you were gone! Even after my asking her 3 times to repeat what she said, it didn’t change the words that echoed threw the phone. My best friend is gone! It’s a feeling so hard to shake! Your spirit will live on in those who loved and shared life with you. They are moments frozen in time and will live in my heart and soul eternally, just as your love will be forever tattooed in the hearts of the grand children we shared. I never thought I’d be loving our kids and g-babies Cloye, Karcen, Bella and Ava grow without you. I know Ashana, Braydon, Avery Mae and Mya aren’t my own, but I love them like they are! ❤️ We were more then BFF’s! We were sister’s, instant family, trying to get through our own life and our kids stuff, have each other’s back, whenever we needed each other day or night, forever ride or die. Did we fuss, fight and disagree on things, ABSOLUTELY! Even then, we BOTH knew we only had to say “I need you” and would drop everything and be there in an instant! That’s what sisters do! It’s when you can set it all aside that says how real our relationship was! ? I Love You Too Much Lisa and know I’ll see you again! ????

    Ms. Lisa I didn’t know you for a long time but the time that I did know you, you took me in and showed me so much love for not only me but my children as well! You treated them as your own grandchildren and me and my husband as your kids! You were an amazing woman with so much love to give and so much spunk! You will be truly missed by everyone who knew you! This just doesn’t even seem real to be typing this out! I’m praying for the whole family!

    We will certainly miss Lisa, here on earth, but will be looking forward to the reunion in Heaven.. We are not only family but also Facebook friends, I’m going to miss her sweet post, usually about her mom & dad, children, grandchildren & in the fall Alabama Football. We will be praying that the Lord will hold her family close & comfort them. I wish we could be there for her celebration of life. We will be making a donation in her name. We love y’all.

    I am truly broken and my heart is shattered. This family was my family. Lisa and I were inseparable for many years. The fun we had was off the charts. Mitchell and Sue, please know my thoughts and prayers are with you. Kevin, Stevie and Peighton, I know you are hurting and I’m praying for peace and serenity for all of you! Trust in God, he will get you through this. I love you guys!

  16. Cathy Saviski on April 26, 2021 at 11:32 am

    My heart goes out to all of you. So very sorry. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. Love to all.

    I’m having such a hard time handling this. I look at your picture, baby girl, and know I have to accept this. My heart is so burdened now. I talked to you not long ago and it was so good hearing your voice. Just know you will forever be missed by me and you will never be out of my thoughts. We were an awesome team and and did things in this world, OUR way! I will truly miss you…may you rest in peace. I loved you dearly!

    Lisa was a sweet, beautiful lady. She was a school mate and we were in the band together. Heaven gained a beautiful angel. Fly high and we will meet again one day.
