Helen and I always remember our time eating and fellowship together at Piccadilly and Shoney’s. We loved listening to her reading the Scriptures. We love you. We always consider you as a special friend.

Randy, first I want to tell you how sorry I am and my prayers are with you at this most difficult time. Lisa, was a very special person, her dedication to her church and her personal savior could never be measured in words. I loved her flair for clothes a lady comfortable being her. I was blessed to hear her sing at church what a beautiful voice. Randy, know how very much I will miss seeing her on this earth but knowing she is in heaven with our Heavenly Father will be your comfort in knowing you will see her again. Not goodbye but see you later to a very special beautiful lady. ❤️🌸❤️

Randy,
I was so sorry to hear about Lisa passing. I did not know about her illness. She was a very special person ( and cousin). I always looked forward to receiving a Christmas card from her. She never forgot to send a card to me at Christmas. I will always have special memories of her and I think the Lord for blessing me with being able to call her my cousin. If there is anything I can do please let me know, Kathleen knows how to get in touch with me. I am praying for you, Kathleen and Ronnie, that the Lord will be with you and comfort you at this time.

Lisa Salley was a Godly woman that was faithful to God. I remember her from churches we have attended together. I love her and will miss her . She had a smile always even when she probably felt terrible but she fought a good fight and was ready to meet her Savior. She's rejoicing with Jesus and healed completely. We love you and always remember your love for God. Randy you are very special and always ready to lend a hand God bless you and comfort you.

Randy, I am so sorry for hearing of Lisa's passing. She and I worked together at Hillside Manor Nursing Home for years and she was a good friend. She always remembered me with a Christmas card every year and she kept in touch on Facebook. She was a fine lady who loved the Lord.

To Our Dear Friend Randy:
We have been thinking about what to share with you and this was our favorite memory of Lisa.- A little over two years ago a small group of us went to Piccadilly to eat after church. Two hours after we all had eaten we were still at the restaurant talking and laughing and enjoying each others company. Lisa was very talkative that day and I think I learned more about her that day than any other day where I had talked to her or been with her. I realized then how very intelligent she was and how big her heart was. I still remember all of us leaving around 330 and the last thing Lisa and I said to each other was I Love You! This Lisa will sure miss you!
