  11. Hello Jim, Kayla and Randy, and dog,

    I have worked at Securitas in Parsippany for the last 15 years. I was never close to your wife and mother, but knew her to be a loving, kind and dedicated person, and Denise Dasaro (who reported to your mom) kept me updated from time to time on the ‘goings on’ with her. I am so, so very sorry for the lose of her life, but trust and pray that she is singing with others at Jesus’ feet now and that you all will again one day be with her in all your ‘new’ bodies.

    I have two daughters, 18 and 21, so close in age to Lisa’s two children in you, so I can’t even fathom the grief. I will hold all three of you, and Lisa’s parents too, in my prayers. All the best to all of you going forward, and I hope that your memories will sustain you all and bring smiles and comfort to you all your days ahead.

    Kind regards,
    Diane Florey
