From Jeremy Beck on August 19th, 2018
Lisa and I didn't necessarily share a common approach to life, but we both enjoyed the theater program at QHS, and I appreciated her patience with who I may have been back in the day. She was a tolerant, respectful, and talented person, and - in spite of our differences - I thought of her as a friend and good colleague in the high school arts program. I am very sorry to learn of her illness and untimely passing. May she have peace -
