Lisa was a beautiful soul who embraced life fiercely. I am saddened to have just found out about her passing. Heaven is sweeter with her there, and I can only imagine the reunion she had with her mom and dad that day. Prayers for her family. I am so sorry.

John & Jill, and the rest of the Fagala family, please know that I am saddened by the unexpected loss of your sister. Know that I have had you all in my prayers and will continue to pray that you all find peace during this trying time. As an educator, I am certain that she made the world a much better place in nurturing children and that loss will have a continued ripple effect on many people.

Sandy and I are so sad to hear that Lisa is gone. I loved the twinkle in her eye and her joyful spirit. Sandy and I remember the church picnic a couple of years ago when we sat with Pam and Lisa and laughed the whole time. I will look over at the place where the choir sits on Sundays and will always see her in her usual spot. Our sincerest condolences.

Lisa loved her family, her friends, her coworkers, neighbors, whoever she came across, if they would let her. She was generous and kind and caring.

One of her biggest joys was her nieces and nephews. The youngest of which is Ethan, who is rocking an extra chromosome of Down syndrome. She so wanted to watch him grow up as she did the others. I am sure she is watching from heaven and smiling that lovely smile always. Please take the smiles and love that Lisa gave you, be you family or friend, and spread them far and wide....fill this world with that kind of love, and it will be such a great place.
