May heart goes out to Lisa's family. I have thought of her daily since her passing. I will never forget the first time meeting her at the CF clinic. I was overwhelmed with the knowledge that the baby I was carrying would have cystic fibrosis. She reassured me that everyone at the CF center would be there for my son and that they would be like a second family to us. How right she was! I thank God for the gift of having her in our lives. She will be so terribly missed.

I am so sad to know that Lisa is no longer here to share her infectious laugh or her sweet smile. We had many adventures driving to Rosarian everyday. I'll never forget all the volleball games with Miss Reader or Miss A driving us to weekend activities. She was always in the lighting booth or back stage during the plays! Memories that will last me a lifetime. I will miss her and I know how much she will be missed by all those that loved her.

I met Lisa many years ago when my sister in law passed away and gave me the beautiful gift of 2 children, both had CF. Little did I know that Lisa would become such a major player in our lives. She taught me everything, worked with me day by day and when the going was rough, there she was to pick me up and say "oh come on you can do this". She was always my sounding board and forever my savior. She was a selfless teacher and I'm pround to call her a friend. She will be missed.
May your family find peace in knowing how so very many lives she touched.
God bless you.

Lisa was an amazing woman and an incredible nurse. She always made me feel at home, even though, we were at the CF Clinic. May God give your family peace, during these difficult times. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
