It seems that there are no words to convey the heartbreak this news has brought, nor the depths of my condolences for the Ellis family. The Bible says "To be absent in the flesh is to be present with the Lord", and there is a comfort knowing she is in heaven and has joined the angels. I pray that she watches over everyone who loved her so dearly on earth. Lisa was a true gem. She pushed herself to grow, to learn, to change, and to be a better person. She will always and forever hold a special space in my heart.

I am so sorry to hear about the news of beloved Lisa. It has been a while since the two of us have seen each other however we have managed to keep in contact since elementary school days of Wilson school. Lisa was one of the first friends that I had made when I first moved to West Caldwell and she was one of the only ones that I kept in contact with all these years. That alone speaks volumes of her warm kindred spirit. I can remember all the summer days we spent bike riding and the winters we went sleight riding down the big hill at Wilson school to the Halloweens we dressed up and went trick or treating to the many night clubs we went dancing at as teenagers. She will be deeply missed. Heaven gained another angel. My condolences to Megan and Mr. & Mrs. Ellis. I pray you all receive strength in this difficult time.
