    Wow what great memories I had of Lisa and I had the summer after tenth grade I’d go over to her house every day and we’d lay on our rafts in her parents pool all afternoon and then we’d have to go get ready to go work at Wendy’s in the evenings and I think that summer was the darkest tan I ever received in my life. We were once got an apartment we shared and then we different directions and I’m sad that we lost touch with each other. Lisa will be missed by many family and her friends until we meet again. Thoughts and Prayers go out to the family.

    Lisa has made such an impact here at Boeing. I have worked with Lisa for almost 18 years and she has always been so kind and helped me when I needed her. On top of being my co-worker, Lisa was also a good friend. She will be greatly missed.

    Lisa was always willing to share her knowledge and educated me with great patience. She was always willing to assist others and I am blessed for having known her. I work in a different area than the Boeing Buildings on Base, and she always knew the answers to the tough questions or where to direct me. She always stopped to help.

    My prayers go out to her coworkers and family. She was a wonderful person and I wish we had been able to have that lunch!

    It’s funny because you meet these people and they make you laugh and they give you hope and they make you realize that there is so much more to life and when you’re with them you forget how empty you felt before. Thank you Lisa for 30 plus years of Love and laughter and most of all MY BEST FRIEND.

    Sandy Newton
    Lifelong Friend.

    It must have been cold there in my shadow,
    To never have sunlight on your face.
    You were content to let me shine, that’s your way.
    You always walked a step behind.
    So I was the one with all the glory,
    While you were the one with all the strength.
    A beautiful face without a name for so long.
    A beautiful smile to hide the pain.
    Did you ever know that you’re my hero,
    And everything I would like to be?
    I can fly higher than an eagle,
    For you are the wind beneath my wings.
    It might have appeared to go unnoticed,
    But I’ve got it all here in my heart.
    I want you to know I know the truth, of course I know it.
    I would be nothing without you.
    Did you ever know that you’re my hero?
    You’re everything I wish I could be.
    I could fly higher than an eagle,
    For you are the wind beneath my wings.
    Did I ever tell you you’re my hero?
    You’re everything, everything I wish I could be.
    Oh, and I, I could fly higher than an eagle,
    For you are the wind beneath my wings,
    ’cause you are the wind beneath my wings.
    Oh, the wind beneath my wings.
    You, you, you, you are the wind beneath my wings.
    Fly, fly, fly away. You let me fly so high.
    Oh, you, you, you, the wind beneath my wings.
    Oh, you, you, you, the wind beneath my wings.
    Fly, fly, fly high against the sky,
    So high I almost touch the sky.
    Thank you, thank you,
    Thank God for you, the wind beneath my wings.

    Lisa and I were best friends growing up, either she was at my house or I was at hers. My most favorite memories were when she decided to try out for Pom and I have a picture of her standing in my living room and going to do her routine. I was so surprised by how good she was but we laughed so hard with her trying to get every move down just perfect. Even though we lost touch I was so glad to learn she found a life long Best Friend. Thank you Sandy for always being there. Mary, Debbie and David I am so sorry for your loss but just imagine she is on the streets of Gold and she was welcomed with open arms. Lisa you will be missed but you have a blast till we meet again.

  7. I walked by the window where you had the beads hung, your desk, glanced I did not see you, only the reflection of your memory I saw.
    I have known Lisa for 17 years here at Boeing, we worked at the Sooner Road Complex (Sooner Road Pack), were it all began for us. I know that Lisa had a very integral part in helping raise the complexes where we are all located now by Tinker AFB. I also know that she was a very dedicated, resourceful, and kind person, even if she was having a bad day, she would step up and have a kind gesture. This is NOT a goodbye, it’s just I will see you AGAIN.
    I work side by side with her best friend Sandy, have for about 8 years. This has left her best friend devastated.
    To her Family, I am sorry for your loss! Just know that she is not far and that when you look in the sky and see that little flicker, she is thinking of you!!
