    I have the honor of being with Lisa’s daughter as it stands we’ve been together for 2 years. During this time I had the privilege of getting to know her mom. She moved in with me last year and when I saw her health declining I made the decision for us to move in and be with her full time. I knew she was as strong as a bull and if she had something to say you bet she said it. I’ve seen multiple memories of her and I could tell she was full of life. A homebody that lived in the moment. She was also very sweet and kind despite her demeanor. She was also vulnerable and seeing her in pain everyday brought a great sadness to the days we had her. I’m so happy she’s no longer suffering and even happier I knew her. I pray the pain of her loss goes away somehow and transforms into joy. Though I only knew her for so long. I love her. And I love her daughter and this family. Fly high sweet angel.

    Lisa was such a loving person and she was a great neighbor. I have only known her for five years along with Kaylee and Lou. She was so funny and great to my daughter who adored her. I will miss our chats we used to have and summer get together. Lisa you were a true fighter tell the end and a good friend, may you watch over us. We will all miss you, until we meet again my friend.

    Lisa Scala was my mother, and let me just say she was the best mother that anyone could ever have. She was always straight up with things, she always kept everything 100 with people. She also taught us some tough love, which I appreciate the most. She raised my brother and I to be responsible, respectful, and hard workers. She taught us so many things, she taught us how to be strong just like her. My mother had serious major health problems. I seen that woman healthy, I have seen that woman sick, I have seen that woman suffer, and I have watched her pass away. My mother and I has been through so much together, I never left her side when she was in the hospital. I would stay the night with her, she was my best friend. She touched so many people’s hearts, I remember my childhood friends always loved my mom. They even called my mom, their mom. I have been through some deaths with other people, but my mother’s death will never be easy for me. I have been counting the days that she has been gone, I never understood the words “I miss you” until she left Earth. I miss her so so much, I’m trying to learn how to live without her. My mother was a fighter, every surgeries, sugar comas, etc My mother always fought through it. She always won the battles, I just wish she was able to win this one! I love you so very very much Mom, I’m going to celebrate you and your life every single day until we meet at heaven’s door. You keep flying high my beautiful angel/ mother!!❤️😭

    I really didn’t get a chance to know her as well as I needed to know for the past two years I did get a chance to know the person she really was and I was glad to and I’m very close to her son, Brandon and her daughter Kaylee, who used to work together at Westland Golden Corral before her passing we spent Thanksgiving together on Christmas and I believe New Year’s. I will always cherish the little time that I did. good to know her.

    My mom was the strongest lady I’ve ever known. She was a single mom at the age of 17. She wk 3 jobs to make sure I was always taken care of. Kids would bully me. When I was younger I wouldn’t fight back. I’d come home.crying from school my mom would put me in the car go-to that was pickin on me and lay into there.parent. my mom taught me how to kick ass. I would be reserved but she say son kick his ass and I would. My mom did a better job turning me into a man than my father who was always absent. She would always get me the best gift for my birthday and Christmas. My mom loved me and my sister so much. We were her world. And although she was tough rough and can be a bitch. But life be tough on us. My mom wenrlt put fighting. People.tell me I’m strong. Have u ever met my mother. Omfg that bitch was strong. I miss my mom all the time. Her being gone makes me feel so alone. She’s always been the person looking out for me. I have so many great memories w my mom. Mom I told u when u were in the hospital b
    When I said my good byes. The day ur heart gave out u apologized to me said u wish u could of been a better mom. But mom tbh there’s nothing u could of done different. Kaylee is such a great young lady. U did.amazing w her
    And although I had over a decade of destruction. U told me.son this isn’t what I raised u to be. U gave me the tough love and saved my life. So don’t u ever think u weren’t a great mom cause u were the best. I love u so much. I miss u so much more. I just.want my mom. Life is tough sometimes but u always knew what to say how to say it and always was there for me. I’m I had given up and I forget how not to
    But I promise ur son will always be strong. The man u raised me to be. And I will always be there for my Lil sister like u wanted. I love u so much mom. This world isn’t the same w out u.
