I met Lisa at work in Columbus but her reputation preceded her via her BFF Missy. She was as great as I had heard. Hard working, kind and loved her kids and Angel babies more than anything. I’m sad you’re gone from this earth but glad you’re finally at peace, which we talked about a few short months ago. Who knew it would be the last time we spoke? Wow. So glad to have known you, girl!

Amber, Chelsea and Drew,

I was so saddened to hear of the loss of your amazing Mom. When I moved to Ga Amanda’s Senior year, Lisa was so kind to me right away. She made me feel right at home with the dance family. We truly just clicked, like we knew each other a lifetime. I was so blessed to get to know her and call her my friend/soul sister. She had such a sense of humor always made me laugh. She was so FUN and had the biggest, kindest heart I’ve ever known. She also had the best laugh and the most beautiful smile. Her love and devotion for her family was so inspiring. My, how she loved y’all. You were her life literally. Now, you’ll have the very best Guardian Angel watching over you just as she did while she was here. Please know, I’m praying for y’all. I’ll miss her. I’ll never forget my “soul sister” nor the memories we shared. Till we meet again my dear friend <3

May God be your comfort through this very difficult time and in the days and months ahead.

With my deepest sympathy,
Tina Mattson AKA Lisa’s Soul Sister xoxo

“Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.”
