  49. I was so very sorry to learn of about the passing of Lisa. I spent most of my time growing up in Dad's pharmacy and Lisa worked in Allen Brothers next door. I was about 5 or 6 and developed a crush on her. Lisa agreed to take me out on my first date πŸ™‚ Something I have never forgotten. Looking back on it, it says a lot about how sweet and what kind of person she was – after all how many 16 or 17 year olds want to have to haul around a 5 or 6 year old on their Friday or Saturday night πŸ™‚ I havent seen Lisa in many years but just wanted to say thank you and you will be missed. To her parents – Mr and Mrs Lee, I am very very sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the rest of her family. She will be missed
