Lisa was a blessing in all of our lives any will be greatly missed. The Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord make his face shine upon you and give you peace.

    Not sure where to start…Lisa was such a huge part of my life for the last 9 years. She made me mad and she made me laugh. She listened to my stories and gave me her best recipes. She gave me crap about being an Auburn fan and listened to me cry when my daughter was sick. She was so important to me and she didn’t even know it. She was the hardest working manager I have ever known and expected us all to have the same drive. To know she is gone has left such a huge hole in so many lives. Her smile, laugh, caring heart will be missed by many. I can easily say ” I love You” and wish I could say it to her and give her a hug. She has instilled in me work ethics that has helped me to move on but I will always remember the impact you made on my life.

    Miss Ermestine and Andrea,
    This is Kelli Newman. We lived across the street when Lisa, Andrea, Neville, and I were children. I am so very sorry to hear of Lisa’s passing. I had actually thought about her a couple of days ago and decided I would look her up on Facebook to see if I could find her, but the opportunity slipped by. She was a delightful child of whom I have very fond memories. I see from her obituary that she had a large family of her own. I so wish we had not lost touch. Neville and I will pray that the Lord comforts you both as well as her husband, children, and grandchildren.

    I am heartbroken for you, Ken, and Lisa’s entire family. Just like her mom and sister, Lisa was such a vivacious, strong, intelligent, and kind-hearted person. Her love for her family was always admirable. I pray that you somehow find comfort in the wonderful ways that Lisa impacted others with her warmth and joy. Much love to all of you.

    Lisa took such good care of everyone around her. Every family gathering we knew she would come with hands full of her traditional dishes and something new that we would love. She loved and knew more about college football than anyone else I know. We always looked forward to game days at the barn every season. She & I loved sharing ideas for parties, decorating & southern dishes. My heart hurts that you are gone all too soon.

    I worked with Lisa several years ago she was a great leader, advocate and friend. She was a constant source of energy, laughter and light. She was thoughtful, driven and giving. She treated people like they were part of her extended family. I know that I am a better person for having known her and she will be greatly missed. My heart is saddened to hear that another angel on earth now has wings. May God comfort your family through this difficult time.
