  1. It is with a heavy heart that I read today of Lisa’s passing. I’ve known Lisa from her involvement with the Torrance South-Bay YMCA, where she was always at the senior events with a huge smile and a hug for me every time I saw her. Recently I met her son and daughter-in-law at a City event, and they wanted to take a picture with me to share with Lisa. I was so humbled that she spoke of me to her family. She was so vibrant it is hard to believe that she is no longer with us. My condolences to her friends and family for their loss. I have no doubt she will be missed by many, myself included.
