My condolences to Wendell and Zelta, Charles and Madison. God be with you in this very sad time. I am so sorry for your loss.
I want to send my condolences to all of Ms. Lisa’s family in this time of grievance. I was a coworker with her for a short time at Tommy and was happy to have had the pleasure of meeting her. She was a hard worker and her customer service was great with all the customers she came in contact with. She will be missed and I know God is in control and he makes no mistakes.
Zelta and Wendell,
Was saddened by your daughter’s obituary and my heart goes out to you. Losing a child is the hardest thing we, as parents, ever go through and after losing my son Tim in 2018, I know what you’re going through. Just trust in God and give your sorrow to Him. Love and prayers go out to you.
My deepest condolences to all of the family. Lisa was one of the brightest beautiful lights I was ever blessed to know in my teenage years. The Good Lord must have needed another angel to sing in his choir… Prayers to you all…
