    I just wanted to pass along information to everyone regarding Lisa's Memorial Service.  Hopefully tomorrow, the official obituary will run in the paper (they did a wonderful article in the paper yesterday:  http://www.jsonline.com/news/obituaries/calderonestewart-focuses-on-empowerment-at-work-and-in-death-f93cpv8-135388418.html) tomorrow as well as online.  Below is the information that will run along with the service information -- SUNDAY @ 2:00 at All Saints Catholic Church.

    Let me know if any questions arise.

    Good Afternoon,
    The time has come for Mike and I to relay to everyone that Lisa has officially gone home.  She passed earlier this afternoon and it was a peaceful process.  She was surrounded by my brother, myself, and plenty of love.
    I will be in touch over the weekend as information on services develop.  In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Tomorrow's Present.  Make checks payable to:
    Cardinal Stritch – Tomorrow's Present
    1037 W. McKinley Ave.
    Milwaukee, WI 53205 
    With much love and thanks for all that you have done (and continue to do),
    Ralph and Michael
