    I met and knew Lisa when I was married to her brother Chris. She was always such a thoughtful, kind and loving sister-in-law. She was a lot like her wonderful Mother Ann. My thoughts and prayers go out to all the family at this difficult time. If any of you ever need to talk I am here for you. (1-406-498-1434) Losing both my parents, Carl and Lily in a short 6 month period I know how rough this can be. Richards Mom Anna passed 4 days after my Mom. My Prayers are with all of you always. Special Thoughts and Prayer to Chris, Greg, Georgia and Sally.
    My prayers and Love is with you my Dear Son, George, I know Aunt Lisa was very Special to you. Condolences, Love and Prayers

    will miss lisa and i am sorry but i will not attend services instead will have my own here on the farm , i just got to know lisa and have shared some good times with her. i have to thank matt for thinking of her and putting me in touch with her. it was a pay you forward thing where matt stopped by and helped me fix my chimney , and in the process i didn’t have any money to pay him with and he was heading out of town, so he asked if lisa needed anything would i mind helping her out.
    well lisa and i became facebook friends and then met. several times i had the chance to do things with her and enjoyed her company. they say some people touch your lives for different reasons and i am still trying to figure out as you may as to why things are the way they are. but i am sure in the end it will be all good and destiny being what it is will make the path clear. i never thought i would see a pay it forward end so quick or that i really wanted it to. but life being what it is , had different plans for lisa and for me i guess. she will be missed. so long good friend.
