Mrs Lisella held her head up and high despite the challenges she had to face during her lifetime.
May she "rest in peace" and be remembered as the Lady she was : always appropriately dressed and coiffed for every occasion, a proud mother and grandmother !.

So glad we got to see her huge smile and feel her welcoming heart, during happy family celebrations !

Sincerest condolences to Andrea, Josette, Bill and Andrew
