Lisa’s Memorial Video

After my first date with Lisa, I wrote a letter to my college roommate, Tinker, stating that I had met the girl I could marry.

“She gorgeous, rides motorcycles, flies airplanes, skis, and scuba dives. She’s a concert pianist. Oh, and did I mention, she has a bachelor’s and master’s from MIT and she’s getting a PhD.”

I’m sure that Tink thought I was dreaming. However, I wasn’t dreaming.

And, as strange as it may sound, Lisa was not the girl of my dreams.

She wasn’t the girl of my dreams because, in my wildest dreams, I could never have dreamt up someone as amazing as her.

People say that everything happens for a reason or that God works in mysterious ways. Those things might be true, but I also believe that we are all here on Earth for a reason. God had put us here for a purpose. Fulfilling that purpose is up to us, through our actions and deeds. We might not know what that purpose is, but God does, and when we complete our earthly duty, its time to move on. As hard as it is for us to comprehend why God has taken Lisa from us, God has done so because her mission here on Earth is complete.

Although we may feel that Lisa’s life was cut short, I believe that she left us because God needs her more than we do.

God has big plans for her.

    I believe that love is constant in this world and beyond this world. Siobhan, you, Ana, & Elena showed that love and you continue to show it as does Siobhan in heaven. We miss her so… I thank God you have been and continue to be part of our lives. I truly admired your devotion to each other and family as I observed you solve life’s problems, take time for family vacations, and always put a happy positive foot forward, a truly loving team.
