Lisa was a very funny ,gifted, and loving niece. She was always smiling or laughing whenever we were in her presence. She was like ray of sunshine when she married Jim and had found her one true love. She will be missed by many. My heart breaks for you all.
love uncle Bruce and Aunt Bonnie

To Jim, Jon, Stephanie, Richard and Janice, and to all how knew and loved Lisa,

I am shocked. Completely. Lisa and I were joined at the hip from 7th grade, all through high school, through boyfriends, concerts, divorces, moves and more. We lost touch over the last 15 years, which I feel is totally my fault. I had no idea Lisa had any long illness. I feel like I have let my best friend down. Oh Lisa, I am so sorry. I wish I knew, I wish I was there for you. I feel lost-I can’t even pull all of my old pictures of you out because they are packed in storage. Even without photos I can still see you laughing at me and my bad hair and fishnets! Or grouching together about AAA and Dominic, and Scott...about spending every weekend at your house with your mom cooking....about giving you Oliver for your birthday...you giving me my Bruce Springsteen album for Christmas in Mr Hebert’s class (I’m sure he was secretly jealous he didn’t get one too). You always picked me up whenever my life fell apart, and never asked for anything in return. Where did our connection go? I am so so sorry, my best friend, Lisa.

Mr & Mrs Boothby, Jon, Stephanie and Jim,
I am so sorry for your loss. Your daughter was the best friend I ever had. I feel like a piece of me has gone. I can hardly imagine your sadness and grief. Please believe me when I say I am so sorry for your loss. I loved her.

I will miss you always. I miss our walks and talks, and our holiday shopping trips to North Conway. I miss our movie nights and going out for Thai and Indian food. But most of all, I miss all the laughs we’ve had together during our decades of friendship.

Rest In Peace, Lisa. ❤️
