Monday March 3rd

I came on caring bridge just now to write a post for my cousin Mary Jo Mathis who is going through treatments for a lttle bit of breast cancer.   I just happened to click over to Lisa's sight and just read Karina's post.  I would first of all like to say that Karina has been God sent through this entire ordeal.  Her writing and timing for everything has been awesome and for that Karina THANK YOU.  you have been great for the boys and i.  Also I would like to say that she has hit it right on with all the THANK YOU'S.  I am in Arizona right now and back at work.  The void in my life is tremendous and I don't think it will ever go away.  I just want you all to know that this summer I will reach out to each and everyone of you to express my gratitude for what each and everyone of you has done for the boys and I.  Lisa was my entire life and now going on without her is so so so difficult.  However, it has been all of you that has helped and for that i do not think there is enough THANK YOU'S.  But I will be sending them out to you all once the time is right.  Again Karina than you and I will be in touch.  Got To go Padres finally won a game today and the bus is pulling in now so I have to go.. Love to you all.

The loss of Lisa is tremendous, a void that will never be filled. With that in mind and as time goes by, Heavenly Father will ease your pain and uncertainty of what, if anything, will give you and your boys comfort. Lisa had a big life, living each day with pure joy. The grieving process is overwhelming but I promise you Tony, as I have learn over the last 20 years dealing with my husbands death, only you know how deep your pain and grief are, your days will become brighter. My prayers and loving thoughts are with you and your family, John, Julie and Paula.
