    We have known Lisa for more than 4 decades. She was a true friend who was full of life. Lisa, Michael, Debbie, and I had many enjoyable adventures with Lisa. We fondly remember the fun times we had going to the movies, eating out, shopping, and dancing. Even when we didn’t speak for long periods of time, we could pick up where we left off and update each other on the latest happenings. Lisa was easy to talk with. She loved her hot chocolate and chocolate croissants. As a matter of fact she loved any type of chocolate. Lisa loved jewelry and always had a fancy pocketbook slung on her arm. Lisa will be truly missed. We love you Lisa. You will always be in our hearts.

    Lisa you’ll be greatly missed. You were my friend for over 40 plus years. We knew each other inside out. You are always a very supportive and caring person. Your love for your family was extremely well seen and your Devotion to helping your parents as they aged was greatly needed. I am in shock now you no longer here but our memories will carry me through the rest of my life. You have a very loving family. I know they already miss you. But if it’s possible maybe you can peek in on them if not you’ll be reunited In God’s Time. With much love and admiration. Your friend Michael Sweeney Jr of Boston.
