To Dave,Kennedy and the entire Ressler family, i am so sorry of Lisa’s passing, i had the privilege of being her step brother for over 30 years. We had not talked in recent years but with her fathers passing it was a joy to be able to talk to her again.I am truly blessed to have been a part of the Ressler family. Me and Lisa enjoyed many good times growing up and at times like best friends. She was always one to make me laugh, she will be missed, and although i will be not able to make the services tomorrow i will be their spiritually. Once again i am truly sorry and heart broken.

Dave and Kennedy,

It is with heartfelt sorrow that I cannot be there to speak with you face-to-face. My prayers have been with you all since I first learned of Lisa’s battle. May God grant you the peace that only He can bring to us when we lose a loved one. Please know that I will continue to hold you all close in my heart and prayers.

In His love,

To the Family of Lisa"

I would like to express my sympathy over the loss of Lisa. I am fairly certain we went to school together. I saw in the obituary that you have recently lost other family members. I am so very sorry for your recent losses.

Although no words can take away the sorrow you are feeling right now it may be a comfort to you to know that God did not intend at all for us to live such a short life often filled with difficulties. Jesus promised at John 5:28,29 that there would be a resurrection. One of my favorite scriptures is found at Revelation 21:3,4 where God assures us he will do away with all pain and suffering. Even death will be done away with.

Please feel free to email me at if you would like to share some more scriptures regarding this wonderful hope where we can be reunited with those loved ones we have lost in death.

Again, please accept my condolences.

Lisa Oberholtzer

Dave, Kennedy and Family-

We are so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this very difficult time.

Dear Linda, Arno and family,
