    I worked with Lisa at Palms. She was so fun to be around. I really enjoyed meeting up with her and Terri on Sunday mornings. I loved her sarcastic humor and wit. I still can’t believe I won’t see her again. She is deeply missed.
    I was in denial when I first heard of Lisa's passing. I was a partner of hers at Palms MS for only one year, but we hit it off very well and then administration gave us new partners, bummer. She was a joy to be around and always let you know where she...  more
