Thanking God for all the heart to heart talks over the years with my friend Lisa. Living life and celebrating life's high's and standing together through the low times. You were an awesome friend who loved and encouraged me with kind words and her infectious laugh. You were the best. So glad our paths crossed. ❤️
Troy, I wouldn't have to say anything and you would know exactly what I am thinking and feeling. We both loved Lisa unconditionally with all our hearts. She always talked about what good care you took of her. She was always saying, "Thank God for Troy!" She was a bright light here on earth and will be even brighter in Heaven! I rarely had a conversation with her that didn't end in laughter! I will think of her every day for the rest of my life and I know you will too. One day you will be reunited with her and I hope that brings you some comfort. Kathy
Thinking of you Troy and sending lots of prayers your way.

Lisa always had a smile on her face and almost always was laughing. She was a beautiful light. Prayers and love to all 🙏💕
