So sorry to hear this about Lisa. I just talked with her on the phone a couple weeks ago. I am the Pastor at Unatego Community Church and Lisa and Homer were part of our church for many years. Lisa was always so cheerful and open to others. She was a servant and served for several years with Colleen Hammond in the church food pantry. Glad she was a woman who put her trust in Jesus and I will see her again.
