To Lisa's family my deepest and sincere condolences. Lisa and I met when we worked at North Valley Endoscopy and have stayed in touch over the years. We would always meet for lunch when we could. I was out of town visiting our daughter over the Mothers Day weekend and so I just got back and now see this on facebook. She will be missed by all. Was a very good friend and I wished I would have gotten together with her once more. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.

My condolences to the family. Lisa and I worked together for 5 years at Dr. Edidin's office in Glencoe. She was a pure joy to be around. We were more than coworkers we became family. I love her dearly and she will be missed. I'm grateful for the hope we have ahead. Isaiah 25:8

To especially .....Rachel......Jeremy and Josh.....and to all who loved Lisa....
Lisa was one of my closest and dearest of friends....... I spoke with her every day until the day before Mother's Day....
We met working for Dr. Bronson and Dr. Barsky and clicked from day one...... we shared everything.......laughs and
tears and lots of pancakes at Walker Bros in Highland Park.......even when she moved to Arizona the bond remained
as tight.......still talking all the time and I miss her dearly already........the most important thing to Lisa was her adored
children and precious grandchildren.......always know that!!!!!!

Please find comfort in the loving promise from our Heavenly Father Jehovah that we can see our loved ones again right here on earth at John 5:28,29 when He calls them from their memorial tombs.

I am so sad to hear about Lisa's passing. I was fortunate enough to work with her, if only for a short time, and will never forget her wicked sense of humor and the way she would do anything she could to lend a hand when someone needed a boost. May she rest in peace, she will be missed!
