Lisa was not only a dear family friend, she was my mother's, Billie Baggett, nurse at Dr. K's office. My heartfelt condolences to her family who she treasured with all her heart. She will be missed terribly. I know she's in the Lord's hands and I know it makes me smile to think my mother is one of the many angels welcoming her with open arms. Rest now, Sweet Lisa.
