Lisa Gilmore. Anyone who knows Lisa is a very lucky soul. Smart, real, honest and the picture of soulfulness, Lisa’s effervescent life force just draws you in. I have many wonderful stories of our friendship but the one that comes to mind is when she took Timmy on Friday mornings for several months while I had a second weekly appointment with Dr. Vilardi to sort through the incredible chaos that was my life in the second year that followed Ted’s death. Finding child care was a constant strain to me. I did not have luck with nannies or full-time help so when Lisa stepped up to help in this way she truly saved me. Being around Lisa with her contagious laugh and zest for life just makes you feel better.
