I'll never forget spending the Summers with Lisa and Larry staying for weeks on end just because I didn't want to go home because we were always having such a great time doing something whether it be four wheeler riding or horseback riding or out on the river they always have Riley active I remember we would wake up and she would have breakfast cooked typically waiting on us she was never too busy to listen if you ever had something you wanted to say ..... . I remember when my father passed away in 92 and I tragic accident at least I got together a bunch of VHS tapes of all of us having a good time in horsing around Roxana running around in a diaper and Riley showing me something that he knew better than I did LOL she gave them to me and it was the most generous and thoughtful thank a person has ever done for me and for that I will never forget Mama Lisa. Prayers Roxanne and Riley Iove yall

One of the most beautiful and loving family-oriented persons I have ever known. I met Lisa when she was a knockout beauty driving a cool Z car when Larry introduced her to me. He was so smitten he was over the moon in love with her. Lisa was the most remarkable lady at handling the most difficult situation. She was so intelligent and had no fear of hard work.
Lisa has always been an integral part of our family always giving and never any concern for herself. She lovingly with sheer strength of steel played a major role in caring for our parents. She is loved as a sister and will always be in our hearts. Lisa knew the importance of family and took the time to be the Mother we all wished we could have been. She knew how to make each of us feel loved and important. Lisa and Larry always sent me flowers for my birthday and it meant so very much to me!
Lisa, has always had the love of Christ and has shown each of us this love for so many years. We shall miss her; yet, we know we must let her go to that beautiful place in Heaven where she’ll fit perfectly.
When I think of Lisa I will always see her loving Riley and Roxanna with every fiber of her being. When she was Blessed with Andrew, Wyatt, Allison, Zachary and then Marshal then Lisa really began to glow with that pride and love for her grand babies! What a special lady! We loved you, respected you and will do our best to follow in your footsteps in loving Yours and Larry’s children and grandchildren!

I know this was the hardest fight you have ever fought. We have been through so many ups and downs and this was a big one. It's so hard to fight something inside of you and no one but you knows how it feels. I promised you I would not let you be alone and I keep my promises. I was sitting right beside you when you decided it was to hard to take another breath. I will always appreciate everything in my life even the really bad stuff. I have learned so much from you and I'm so honored to have been able to keep you as comfortable as possible on the end of your journey. You didnt win this fight against cancer. Because cancer sucks! But it was the best circumstances with the worst case scenario. I know you loved God more than anyone and anyone that was loved by you knows that was a lot of faith and love. You were the strongest Lady to have fought with dignity and grace through this last year as trying as it was. I will always love and appreciate you!
