To the family of "Lisa" as she was known to me; I just want to take a moment to express my heartfelt condolences to you all. She was a wonderful person. I met her through her coming into the Clinton law office of Mr. Lew Starling, Jr. We became friends immediately. I will miss her beautiful smile and our faith talks and prayers but I know she is alright because she is with our heavenly Father rejoicing painfree. Be blessed in knowing that this same Heavenly Father will send comfort to us all in the times ahead.

I have a stuffed monkey in my office which Lisa brought me during one of her visits here in our Smithfield firm. Lisa was not just our client, she was a dear friend of mine.
