There are no words to express the loss of my niece, Lisa. She was a beautiful person both inside and out. She was always smiling, laughing and helpful to her parents. Rest in peace sweet Lisa. You will be missed.

I knew Lisa for 20 years when I lived in Hampton. She was one of the most special and uplifting people I have ever known, always having a contagious smile and kind word, always being a loving mother, wife, daughter, and friend. My family and I loved her children so much and looked forward to their visits. Her children were so well mannered and fun to be with. We thought Patrick was part of our family. I wouldn't take anything for the three walks I went on with Lisa and I would give anything if I had gone on more. To know Lisa was to love her. My heart breaks for Addis, Jim, Ray, Angela, Patrick, Trevor, Mike, Duane, and others who knew and loved her.
