Dear Lisa,

We send our deepest condolences and I wish I could be there in person, as you were with me. Your mother raised a wonderful, smart and hard working daughter in you. May she rest in peace after many years with you.

It is with great sadness that I acknowledge the loss of Gail in my life. We have been dear friends since college. I loved her. She was my best friend.
I thank you, Lisa, for calling me at such a difficult time. It is hard to find the words to express my feelings as you experience your mom?s passing. She has been such a huge part of your world from your very first breath. I know how difficult it must be to say goodbye. I hope you experience some moments of beauty as you celebrate her life. Please give my love to your family and know that I am with you in spirit.

Dear Lisa and Eric,
I have known you since you were born and your mom kept me and all of her grammar school and high school friends up to date on your great accomplishments as you grew up. She was so very proud of you both. You brought love and light into her life and especially through the grandkids including the 4 legged ones. May her memory be forever a guiding light bringing love and peace into all of our hearts.
