She love the Lord, her family and enjoyed helping people. Through she had no children, Diamond, her dog, was her baby. She left with us the day before passing, “Please be there for each other, grow closer to God, and love your family and friends.” On the afternoon of March 29, 2014, God in his infinite wisdom called Ga’ Lisa to her heavenly home. We can rejoice in knowing she received Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior. She will forever be loved and truly missed.
