  1. Lisa, you always brightened my day while checking out at Ingles. I’m fact, I often chose that particular store so as to be able to talk with you. You did good work, but more importantly, you were pleasant and made it evident that you enjoyed your job because of the customer interactions. Thank you for keeping me apprised of the upcoming weather and other topics. I’m honored to have been your friend.

  2. Judy, Bill and I were so sorry to here about Lisa. She was a treasure, always smiling and friendly. May you and the family feel God’s loving arms around you in the coming days.
    Bill and Mary Dot Waddell
