I have known Lisa and Jack since the night they met on Cape Cod back in the easy going days of college. I got to meet their children when they were parents in their 20's and see their custom made house, built by Jack's brother, as it was being built. I got to watch their children grow up and see Lisa be the only one of the four of us pharmacy students sharing a run-down apartment in Boston, to actually practice pharmacy for a lifetime and become a manager. Lisa was one of three transfer students to Massachusetts College of Pharmacy along with Anne O'Dwyer (Rentz) and myself. We bonded together from day one and spent time helping each other through school and exploring Boston including our favorite Irish pubs for sing-along night. Lisa has always been one of the classiest people I have ever known. She was always polished, well-spoken, and polite. I can't yet wrap my head around her being gone. Her life was vibrant and adventurous and well shared with family and friends. I will miss you dear longtime friend. Your light lives in my heart.
