Remembering the last conversation with Lisa at the Phillips's Family Cookout, we got on the subject of tattoos. Lisa mentioned that she was thinking seriously about getting one. After asking her what she wanted, Lisa (in her always soft voice) said "I don't know Trina, but it will be something spiritual". To Lisa's family: May GOD be with you, ease your loss, & strengthen you. Remember the good times you had w/Lisa and how much you loved each other. ❤️❤️
