I had the pleasure of meeting Alisa, when her and Edward first met. We had a get together and had a game night. I fell in love with her beautiful heart and soul. We had so much fun together, going to the lake , camping , boating and swimming at Beaver lake. I was so proud when she ask me to help with her and Edward's wedding. It was beautiful, she was beautiful! I had the pleasure of doing her hair for their special day. We had many parties, get togethers, bon fires. Like Alisa I loved Pepsi.
She loved to cook and gardening. She adored animals, she had so much love to give. Alisa was an amazing cook and shared her egg rolls and we at times rolled them together. I thank God for allowing me to have that time with such a special loving woman. Beautiful inside and outside. A huge heart for others and kept going even though she was always in so much physical pain. She loved the Lord and she loved others and I don't think she ever met a stranger.
I love you my sweet beautiful sister in Christ and you are missed. You will always be in my heart. Gone but never forgotten.

I met Lisa when we were thirteen. We met at the skating rink, a place we would spend every weekend for years to come. Hours on the phone together every night, at each other's houses. I could always just be myself around her, talk to her about anything. She had that infectious smile, that energy and light around her.
It was tough when she moved from Vegas all those years ago but we never lost contact. I cherished the letters, Christmas cards every year, texts, phone calls. Facebook was a God send.
I was so happy when she met Edward and married him. She deserved happiness and that's what he gave her an abundance of! He was her angel here on earth and now she is his in heaven.
I will never forget you my beautiful friend. Your smile, your light, your beautiful soul. Until we meet again, you will always be in my heart. <3

When I was a child, my cousin Lisa was the closest thing I had to a big sister. She was always there, always with a smile on her face, always knew what to do or how to make things fun for me. She looked out for me and always took the time to help me understand things... She was one of the first people to show me what unconditional love was and how to choose happiness.

I have rarely met someone with so much light and kindness. She truly was the closest thing to an angel on earth that I have met.
