A mother holds her children’s hands for a little while…..their hearts forever.
Lisa was a typical middle child, well-hidden between us so she always sparkled. She loved her children and grandchildren. She was so smart and brave and she loved adventure. She loved to hunt for old bottles and could out-craft Martha Stewart. She was the first sibling to Donna and her first sister. She was her best friend and always sparkled. Donna will miss her shine forever.
Lisa was a kind, compassionate, funny, pranking jokester that would give you the shirt she’s wearing if you needed it. She would greet you with a smile, hug, food, drink and silliness. She had an eye for beauty especially finding angels in everything. Now she is the angel Greg will see in everything.
Lisa was a special sister. She was special in every single thing she touched. She always had a sixth sense of things down to the smallest detail. She saw things that most of us would not. Her perspective of life was about family, fun and fire pits. She loved nature. She and Krista were doppelgangers and will miss that more than words can say.
Lisa understood April. They were the same kind of goofy when they were together. She never judged her and loved her. She yelled at her only one time her entire life when she was ten years old and she deserved it. She thanked God every day for her blessings. She prayed for friends, family, dogs, birds, rabbits, butterflies and nature in general. She had a good-caring heart. She could not stand suffering of any kind and she would try to help others in need the best she could. Lisa saw beauty and value in things most people would overlook. She could see blessings all around her – the way the clouds moved across the sky, the shape of a tree at sunset, light through a discarded jar-and she thanked God for allowing her to experience His splendor. Her faith remained strong under tremendously difficult circumstances. She would always tell April that tomorrow would be a better day and that she and Birdie would either soak up the sun or play in the rain.
