Jeff, Troy, Annie, and Debbie, my heart is heavy, and saddened with your loss, for many years we enjoyed the simplest things in life. Living around Chewy, watching our parents enjoying playing cards while we enjoyed each other company. As adults, we are seperated by miles, but you all are always on my mind and in my heart. I have so many wonderful memories of Lisa, too many to attempt to list.
I will miss her daily post on facebook, and her beautiful way of making everyone who has every met her feel loved. I love you Lisa, and will see you later. Never good - bye, just until we meet again !!!

To all of Lisas family (too many to mention), you were absolutely blessed to have called Lisa your family. She was a great person and even better friend. I enjoyed working with her all those years at Watts. She was such a huge help to me being my assistant my first year teaching. We had some fun times! From the laughs we had in the classroom to coaching our Watts 1st grade basketball team called the Lil Sooners. We both were avid Sooner fans! There are many things I will miss about Lisa but her positive attitude is one I will miss the most. No matter how bad she may have felt you wouldnt know it. I am so very sorry for the loss of such an awesome lady. I know Lisa loved life and her family. Thats why missing her hurts so much. All of you are in my prayers. Joe, Trey, Bailee, Ethan, and Mason I know how special Lisa was to all of you. My heart hurts for you. You have been in my thoughts and prayers.

I would like to extend my heartfelt condolences. May you find comfort in warm memories. And the coming promises from the Bible.

Such as Revelation 21 3,4 " With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say :' Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. ' "
