  1. Lisa you inspire me by taking the time to help children and others quietly without getting attention and praise. You do it because you are kind and generous and have a caring heart.

    And I admire your spirit- funny, warm, casual, non judgmental and never a mean word about others.

    You are a great mother too. Even your girls are do-gooders. Well done.

    You wouldn’t even hurt a fly. Or a wasp!
    I think that’s nuts but whatever. The bugs of the world should thank you too 🙂

    Thanks for making a small piece of the world a better place. And the neighborhood. And the tennis club.

    You are awesomely awesome.

  3. Lisa,

    The world would be a better place if we had more beautiful soles like YOU! I knew you were a exceptional person and this confirms it. I hope this inspires more good doing!!!!

  4. Congratulations Mom! I’m so proud of you for all your hard work, love, and dedication. You are such an inspiration, not only to me but to many others in the community. All it takes is one act of kindness to make a difference, and what you have done with your work in CASA has not gone unnoticed and will change the life of that family forever. You’re an incredible role model, mother and friend, and I’m truly blessed to be your daughter, learning from you and your selfless actions. I love you Mom and am so proud of you!
