    So very sad to hear of Lisa’s passing. I know she was passionate about teaching, as I taught with her at a Landis. I also know she was even more passionate about her children and loved them dearly. I pray God will carry them through this deep, dark valley and they will feel His presence and her love all their lives!

    Pat, Karen, Beth, Matt, Doug, and families: I won’t say you were my second family when we were growing up–because there is no second. You were, and are, family. Lisa will be missed. While I rejoice in her journey home, I am torn for those left behind. Love you all.
