Lisa and I were "girlfriends" when we were very little maybe 6 or 7. I remember her like yesterday. We were always together. Growing up for awhile in an apartment complex at that time we were little kids. I remember her brothers too. We would play hide and seek, kick the can....many years ago. I was just thinking of her God Bless Lisa and her family

Sweet, beautiful Lisa. I will forever cherish our friendship and the memories of our special times together, laughing, dancing, drinking wine, listening to music and the crazy Ya-Ya Sisterhood. You were a beautiful lady, inside and out, always kind, generous and funny. The passion you put into cooking for friends and the special ways you created a space where everyone felt at home made us feel so special. I thank you for sharing your life with me. Find rest my friend. I love you and miss you dearly.

Goodbye my friend. Thank you for being my comrade in arms taking on the dance floors around Tucson when the Bad News Blues Band was playing. Thank you for inviting me to the poker games. Thank you for your wonderful and sometimes snarky sense of humor. I will not be able to see the Dancing Man here in Tucson without thinking about you. I remember when we first saw him at the Arizona Blues Hall of Fame concert at Club Congress. After joking about him being on crack he overheard and joked right back, and you got up and danced with him. Ever kind. Thank you for being my friend. I will miss you.
