God has taken a beautiful angel from us but left us with lots of great memories. I will never forget my nickname she gave me. I reminded her of the blonde on king kong so you gave me that nickname king kong. I will always think of you when I watch the show or here the word king kong. Take care of our precious angel god in heaven, we will all love and miss you a lot.

Sissy, where to start? I remember first time I met you I was a little scared at first for I had never been around someone as a special needs person before but gin kept saying sissy this is lissa and we walked closer to you and you raised your hands to hug me and screamed My Lissa. And as you enveloped me into you arms as well as your world I seen the most excited, silly loving soul. You transformed everyone around you by your special unique way of life. I remember so many things but a favorite one was Ginger picking at you and you tell Ginger Stop and then you smacked Gin and Ginger said you brat then you said no Lissa is and we all laughed. I know your family will miss you but we all have a piece of what a beautiful soul you were in our hearts. I thank your family for allowing me the opportunity to know you. Now fly as high as the balloons that you loved to watch. You are a true gem of love.

There are so many memories of our time in Banner, from sleep overs to hours of play between our houses and swimming in the ponds. Oh how I miss those times! My deepest sympathies and love to the family.
