There are some people from your past whom you will always remember because they either had an impact on your life or they touched you in some way. Skip, you are one of those people. As someone from your Beach High family, I am deeply saddened by your loss and will keep you and your loved ones in my prayers. Gail Sandler Reiss, MBSH 1967

Coach-I recently read about the loss of your daughter and I want you to know how very sorry I am. These are the most difficult times imaginable. Last summer I lost a grandson when he was only 15 days old, but it was my daughter who really suffered.

When I heard about your daughter, I thought that I would email you and tell you, as I am sure so many others have, what a tremendous influence you were in my life at Beach High. You believed in me, you encouraged me, you cared for me (and all of our team). I have followed your life and your extraordinary career ever since, and I want to say “thank you” for the incredible man you have always been.

I was speaking with Jeff Shane the other day and we decided that you will never know how much you meant to us, unless, of course, we tell you. That is what I am doing now. I would not have become the person I became without you in my life. May God give you and your family peace, and may He show your heart how much you are loved for all you have done for me and so many others. Warmest personal regards and sincerest condolences from a true admirer of his “Coach”.--Richie

I am so sorry for your loss. I met Lisa after she moved to Baltimore. A group of us psychologists would get together each month to talk about cases and, many times, to share about our lives. Lisa taught me a great deal about treating OCD. At times Drew and the boys would stop in, and it was very clear that she cherished each and every moment of being a mother. I will miss her warmth, kindness, intellect, smile, and sense of humor greatly. I know she touched many lives in every place she lived. God bless you in this time of sorrow.

Lisa and I, working together at McLean Hospital in Belmont, MA, saved my life. I could not have been as successful in dealing with my OCD with any other therapist. I'll never forget her.

Lisa was a terrific person and student during my time at LSU and I can't think of a closer family. Nor can I imagine how much she will be missed. It is a comfort to know that her children and husband have such loving families to support them. I remember Lisa bringing her entire family (at least all that were in Baton Rouge) to a family therapy role play exercise I'd assigned when she was enrolled in my class in graduate school. Lisa and her family had such great fun with it, especially her dad and mom, who clearly loved their daughter Lisa. God bless you all.

I am so sorry for your loss. Lisa meant so much to me during the time of Kay's illness. I will always remember how she grieved with me and for me. And how kind you were, too, Drew. I have missed having her bright, cheerful presence in the Press Box, and I've missed watching Samuel and Ezra grow up. Thank you, Sandy, for keeping me up to date. My condolences to you all.
