Dear Jim, 
What a wonderful woman. You both were such a pleasure to be around. Reflections has always been one of my favorite places to go. Lisa was so sweet and greeted everyone with a smile in the restaurant and out. I was fortunate enough to call her a friend. There are so many people who have a void in their hearts today. She was as special as she looked, the real deal.  My husband and I will miss her terribly. I know she is up in heaven playing with her puppies and looking out for all of us. With much love your friends Rebecca and Michael Baran. You are in our prayers and we are so sorry for your huge loss. Peace always  Becky xoxo

I send my deepest sympathy to Lisa’s family.  I’ve known Lisa since she was a little girl. I have many fond, funny and happy memories of Lisa.  She truly will be missed.

Blessings and Love,

Jack, my name is Shirley Price. You might remember my husband, Ken. I am so sorry to hear of Lisa’s death. I have been coming to Reflections with and without Ken (he died 7 yrs. ago) for many years and have always chatted with Lisa. She was such a nice woman. I will miss seeing her. I know she loved her dogs as we talked of that. I must have seen her maybe a year or so ago and was shocked to hear of her death. My prayers are with you. I know you will miss her.


Lisa was a beautiful person.  Please accept our sincere sympathy.
