I'm so sorry for your loss. While there may be tears, I pray that you all can remember the good times! She was one feisty woman! How awesome that she has been reunited with the love of her life! And to live with Jesus, that's just awesome! Much love from Amanda, Tyler and Danielle
Sending our thoughts and prayers. I remember how warm and welcoming Lisa's grandma always was and how happy she was to be with family. I was lucky to join Lisa during some high school lunch hours for a quick visit and snacks with the Montgomery's. Beautiful family and couple. God bless. -Bethany, Nick, Karson, Spencer-
