Special thank you to UW Hospital Staff and Middleton EMS.

Lisa loved spending time with family and friends, shopping (especially at Bath and Body), going out to eat and to the movies.

"Lisa, we will think of you every time we see the color pink, our phones ring or text messages come through. We will miss your cute, quirky, and clever sayings, such as “Wide open like a parked car," "As old as a cat's tail," "Spending money like a zookeeper," and "The inside of this car smells like a wet border collie!" You had a deep laugh and a big, beautiful smile. Thank you, Lisa Ann for touching so many lives in such a short time. We will forever remember all the great memories together. You will be deeply missed."

Lyrics by Chris Daughtry - "I don't regret this life I chose for me. But these places and these faces are getting old, So I'm going home. I'm going home."

Lyrics by Bon Jovi - "Never say goodbye, you and me and my old friends, hoping it would never end. Holdin’ on, we got to try, holdin’ on to never say goodbye."

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
