  9. Barry, Heather & Maria, please know that each of you and your families are in ALL of Stone Mountain’s prayers. I posted our kindergarten picture from June 1968 on my Face Book. Lisa is on the second row, third from the right. She was always there for any one that needed anything even in 1968 when we met. May these words bring you some peace and comfort:

    And God Said….
    I said, “God, I hurt.”
    And God said, I know.”

    I said, “God, I cry a lot.”
    And God said, “That is why I gave you tears.”

    I said, “God, I am so depressed.”
    And God said, “That is why I gave you Sunshine.”

    I said, “God, life is so hard.”
    And God said, “That is why I gave you loved ones.”

    I said, “God, my loved one died.”
    And God said, “So did mine.”

    I said, “God, it is such a loss.”
    And God said, I saw mine nailed to a cross.”

    I said, “God, but your loved one lives.”
    And God said, “So does yours.”

    I said, “God, where are they now?”
    And God said, “Mine is on My right and yours is in the Light.”

    I said, “God, it hurts.”
    And God said, I know.

  10. Lisa and I were co-workers at Lanier/Ricoh and shared a lot of laughs ( and frustrations!) about the job and she spoke all the time about her husband and daughter. She was such a sweet person and have a lot of good memories; I recall she kept candy at her desk and everyone in the dept loved stopping by her cube! Always helpful, always a sympathetic ear, God bless y’all in this time, I know you both were the world to her.

  11. To the family, I wish to express my sympathy in your loss and to let you know that my thoughts are with you. Although I only worked with Lisa for 3 years at Stratix, it seems like it was so much longer. She would always say “I’m a people person and I just love meeting people”. And that she was, always lending a hand or sharing a good story. I will miss you Lisa and may you rest in peace.

  12. I worked with Lisa at Lanier/Ricoh for over 26 years, and had the privilege to call her friend. I have such wonderful memories of her, along with others from the “lunch lady group”. Lisa had such a warm smile, a great laugh, and a big heart! To her family, you are in my thoughts and prayers, God Bless.

  13. I will always remember your lovely smile and warm personality. I am so glad you made it to the reunion; didn’t know it would be our last union. In our 8 years at Lanier, you were the spark I needed some days to get me through. Now you can rest and find peace with your Heavenly Father. Until we meet again…I will forever remember the good times we shared at Lanier. My prayers are extended to Barry & Heather; you definitely had an Angel here on earth. God Bless.

  14. I am very sad to hear about the passing of Lisa, who was always so pleasant and compassionate. My prayers are with Heather, Barry, Marie and the rest of Lisa’s family. Your pain with lessen but your loving memories are forever.

  15. My deepest sympathy goes out to Lisa’s family. I had the honor to meet Lisa at Stratix a few years ago. One of the most genuine people I have met in my lifetime. May her memories live upon us for years to come. I pray for your strength to carry on as I know this is a very difficult time for each of you. Be Blessed and know that she is in great hands!

  16. So sad to hear of Lisa’s passing, I worked with her for 24 years at Lanier/Ricoh, she was a dear friend, we had a lot of laughs & memories. I will miss you my friend. Prayers for Barry & Heather at this difficult time.

  17. My condolences and prayers to Mrs. Lisa’s surviving family and friends. Lisa’s and I met a few years ago at work (Ricoh) through a mutual friend and instantly there was a connection and bond. She was such a sweet and gentle soul who’s presence was so inviting. Heaven has gained another beautiful angel. You will truly be missed. Rest peacefully my sweet and dear friend.

  18. Worked with Lisa for many years, so sorry to hear of her passing. She will be dearly missed by family and friends.

  19. Lisa, you are going to be missed. We have been friends since day 1 when I started working at Ricoh.. I want to send my prayers to Barry, Heather and Maria. I can’t believe I am posting this today. My friend I am going to miss you. Love you with all of my heart. I am going to remember all of our good times. Rest In Heaven. God has a wonderful person joining him. Love you Lisa

  20. My heart is sadden with the loss of Lisa. I had the pleasure of working with her at Stratix. I will miss seeing her smiling face and tasting her delicious baked goods. Barry, Heather and Maria I will keep you all lifted up in prayer.

  21. Lisa was a friend and confidant to us all! We spoke for the first time after many years a few months back, as if time had stood still, and promised to meet one day soon. I too like so many, worked with Lisa for 7 years and had very similar memories of her. Lisa could always be found offering a kind word, or helping hand to “everyone”. She was that” ray of sunshine on a rainy day” and will truly be missed. May her friendship, and love for everyone be forever remembered and help her family heal. May God continue to give you strength …Barry, Heather and Maria, knowing that God took another Angel home.

  22. So sorry to hear about Lisa my prayers and thoughts are with all of you remember she will always be with you. God will give you the strength and he will always be with you to get you through these trying times. God Bless

  23. Barry and Heather – Dale Thomas just let me know of Lisa’s passing – I was shocked. I know how difficult this must be on both of you. I have been in your shoes and it is not easy but I assure you with each passing day – God does give peace, mercy and grace. I only heard good, positive things regarding Lisa and I know she was a great wife and mother. I will keep you both in my prayers and trust that God will walk even closer beside you now. Lean on Him and He will not fail you. Sending my love and hugs to you both.
