In Loving Memory of Lisa Ross who was deeply loved. We are raising money for medical costs associated with her treatment for breast cancer

Lisa passed peacefully in her sleep on March 31 in the early morning hours. She faced her illness with the grace of an angel and never once complained about her situation. It is comforting to know that she is no longer suffering and is freed from pain.  Lisa touched so many people,  and truly made a difference in their lives. Several days before she died, I read to her the messages people had sent to her on this site. She closed her eyes, and smiled a beautiful, serene smile. Your words meant so much to her. She knew she is loved. 

Chris, Taylor, Abby and their extended family are so appreciative of the outpouring of love and support at this painful time in their lives. The road ahead is uncertain, but  they are comforted by the care and concern you have all shown. Thank you all so much for supporting this family that means the world to me. You are all their guardian angels.

You can shed tears that she is gone
Or you can smile because she has lived

You can close your eyes and pray that she will come back
Or you can open your eyes and see all that she has left

Your heart can be empty because you can't see her
Or you can be full of the love that you shared

You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday

You can remember her and only that she is gone
Or you can cherish her memory and let it live on

You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back
Or you can do what she would want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
