Lisa, I have been so sad since I heard about your Mom's passing. I was shocked. I can't get over how peaceful, calm, stress free she looks in her photo. I am so happy she was able to such peace and happiness in her remaining life. I so sorry it has to end the way it did. Praying for you and the rest of her family that you will soon grieve less with the passing of time.

Lisa and family, I just can’t wrap my head around this. I haven’t kept up with Denise since she And I moved from Peoria but I have so many great memories of the fun years we all had. One of my favorite memories is when Larry passed away in 2002 and Denise was so kind to offer her condo for Angie and me to get away. Me, Angie, Denise and Lisa spent a week down in Florida and I can’t remember ever laughing sooooo much. Denise, my friend I am always going to remember you. You are the BEST mom and grandma and Lisa and her kids are so blessed to have you. 🙏♥️
