TALKING TO LISA THRU THE GRAVE
HI, JUST CAME HOME TO INDIANA FROM MY LITTLE FLORIDA HOME FOR A VISIT. ONE OF THE FIRST PRIORITIES IS GOING TO THE CEMETARY WHERE LISA IS BURIED BESIDE HER BROTHER JUST AS ALAN MATHENEY PROMISED HER SHE WOULD BE IF SHE PUT HIM IN JAIL. THEY'RE UNDER A PINE TREE. WE HAD LOTS OF PINE TREES WHERE WE LIVED. I'LL BE THERE SOMEDAY, TOO. WHEN I WAS RAISING LISA'S TWO GIRLS AND WORKING AND WORKING FOR VICTIMS, SOMETIMES I WOULD GET SO FRUSTRATED AND TIRED THAT I WOULD GO OUT TO THE CEMETARY AND SIT ON THE PLOT TO GET AS CLOSE TO THEM AS I COULD. iT SEEMED AS THOUGH I COULD HEAR LISA SAYING: "MOM, I DON'T NEED YOU NOW, BUT THEY DO. I KNEW SHE MEANT HER GIRLS. THIS TIME WHEN I SAT THERE I HEARD IT AGAIN, BUT THIS TIME I KNOW SHE WAS TALKING ABOUT YOU, THE PEOPLE WHO COME TO THIS SITE AND/OR READ THE BOOK. I READ A SAYING THAT THE SUPERIOR PERSON FINDS WITHIN HIM/HERSELF ALL THAT THEY SEEK. THE SMALLER PERSON FINDS IT IN OTHERS. START BY USING YOUR INNER STRENGTH TO LEARN, CHANGE, HELP AND FIND THE FREEDOM AND POWER YOU HAVE WITHIN YOURSELF. iT'S IN THERE. THEN FIND THOSE WHO WANT TO HELP YOU. THEY'RE THERE.

I'm curious... How are Brook and her younger sister doing? Were the many donations made after Lisa's death able to aide the girls in their educations and careers?
