I will miss my friend and neighbor, she was so nice and caring. Our families had such good times over the years getting together on the 4th to shoot off fireworks and visit on New Year’s. She will be sorely missed. My prayers are going out to all of the family. 🙏🏻😔

How Blessed are all of us who knew and loved Rise’. She was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. To me she was a beloved daughter and friend. She is the one person who would stand up for what she believed and the one person you would want on your team if you needed help ! Her heart was full of love for her family and she showed it every minute of the day in every way. She is and will always be missed . Our hearts are heavy and our tears are flowing . But knowing Rise’ she is watching over each and everyone of us. When you look up at the stars at night, she is the brightest star that is glowing. Thank you God for letting her be a Blessing in my life !

One of the hardest things is saying goodbye for now!
Rise’ and I went to Southwest High School.
We always had fun.
I was in her and Rick’s wedding. Rise’ was the most beautiful bride.
We had our children together.
My daughter , Joanna and Christina were childhood friends.
Yes! This is hard!
Rise’ was such a good friend, she will be truly missed.🦋💜🦋Tell we meet again!
💜Love you always!💜


I don’t know where to find the words to say what my heart feels. You were there for me when I was going through a hard time with my ex wife. I came to you many times at your home and you always were at the door to welcome me in with a smile and hug. You never judged me no look at me for being strange or crazy. You’d welcome me as a friend and human. When I learned of your death I was shocked and yet devastated. I couldn’t believe it was true. Not Rise’ I said. She to strong of a woman for that. But God had other plans I now see. It will take me a minute but I’ll get there. I also want to thank you for always being there for my sister Heather when she needed you. Now you are with her and it comforts me somewhat to know that. They say God only takes the good ones. Now I know it to be more true than before. I will forever hold you in my heart and soul until we meet again. You made a difference and I am the life that was changed. Thank you for that. I must close now. You are missed beyond words that could ever say here. Rest east my friend. You have earned your wings. Love your friend always, Charlie.
