My beautiful friend Lisa, where do I start...I didn’t know you passed until today and I’m sorry I didn’t make it to the mass. And now that I know I’m not sure what to do, I’m devastated.

We met through my brother in law around 25 yrs ago, when you guys dated, and we became fast friends! We stayed friends after you guys split and the rest is history. I remember you coming over with Frankie as a baby when I was pregnant, so happy for me that I was because I tried so long. Then a couple of years later you came by with both your children and they all played in my pool. We tried to see each other often but life really did get in the way for both of us. But, we always spoke whether on Facebook or on the phone and we always laughed and always ended the conversation with “I love you”.

We called each-other “Chin” because we both had the same chin lol. We joked about it often. I loved your N.Y. accent, I loved how much you loved freestyle music, I loved our talks most of all. You were an absolute wonderful mother, friend, sister and daughter, everyone loved you! You would give anyone the shirt off your back, you were absolutely selfless in every way. A beautiful face and soul to match.

Lisa’s children were her life she bragged about them whenever we spoke and I was always so happy to hear how happy she was when she spoke of them. Loved and cared for her sister, parents, nieces...her love for them was deep.

I need to honor you in some way so I will spend some time thinking of ways to do that.

Gone way too soon my friend I will love and cherish our friendship always! Until we meet again I will remind my brother and dad to take care of you until I get there someday. ❤️😢

Dear Lisa
You will be missed. Your heart was as big as Staten Island. I will remember going to your home on Sunday mornings and you were already busy cooking sauce something you enjoyed doing. Your first love was your family. Many people didn’t know this but you did take care of your little sister. I remember when she was getting ready to go to Florida and she was in a panic because she didn’t know what to pack. You dropped everything and went to pack for her and the kids. Another example of how big your heart was. Love you and will miss you always 💔

I met Lisa in September of 1986 at St. Peter’s high school for girls. We happened to be in the same home room due to our last names being at the end of the alphabet. From that first day in class 9-C, I knew I wanted to be her friend.

We realized we both lived on the south shore and took the one and only train to and from school. Everyday, we’d meet on the 7:07 express, yoo-hoo’s in one hand, Marlboro Reds in the other and that’s how it all began.

Looking back on our time at Peter’s, I genuinely feel bad for the staff we pretty much tortured. If u heard one of our names called to sister Bernadine’s office, u knew the rest were certainly to follow, whether it was for smoking in the bathroom, sneaking down to the locker room during periods, or that she had gotten a phone call from carol at the donut hut that we were sitting at the counter having breakfast not caring whether or not we were late for class.

After graduation, we continued to see each other and kept in touch for many years...then, as it usually happens, we got busy with kids, and life in general. In 2002 I was redoing my house and realized the architect drawing my plans, was no other than Bob, Lisa’s father. I immediately called her, and we made it a point to get together.

It’s hard to put into words how I feel about Lisa but I’ll try. She was crazy, hyper, funny, loyal, caring, compassionate, empathetic, and generous. She was a Taurus, as am I, our birthdays are 2 days apart...and my god did she fit that stubborn trait to a T. Lisa loved her music, especially freestyle...blasted it with the windows down even at 48 years old, caring less what anyone thought. She was beautiful inside and out. She would give u the shirt off her back and the last dollar in her pocket even when she had nothing, and even if it meant her not eating.

Her biggest love and greatest accomplishment, was of course Frankie and Nina, they were her world and all she ever talked about. I remember back when the kids were in school and we had free time, I’d say “let’s grab lunch or something” and the reason was always the same, I can’t, I’ll be up at PS 56. Always volunteering her time for whatever they needed.

Lisa hasn’t always had it easy, and faced many battles in her short life, yet regardless of the chaos going on in her world, always had a smile on her face, and ready to help anyone, in any way they needed.

That’s who Lisa Rizzi was. And I’m honored to have had her as a friend.

Rest in sweetest peace my beautiful friend.
