This is Lisa's daughter, Mariah. I just wanted to let everybody know that while driving to work, she was swept away in the river. She had been missing since yesterday at 6 a.m. but this morning, firefighters found her body in her car. She was the best person I know. She was also more than a fantastic wife and mother, the best any of us could ask for.

It must have been so difficult to write that entry, but I hope the responses from the stitching community are of some comfort.

As others have said, your mother was a talented designer, and she will be missed by many. I've only had a chance to stitch one of her designs ("Witchy"), but the finished piece is sitting by my computer as I type. Although it's Halloween-themed, I've left it out for several months since I like the design so much.

My heart and prayers go out to you and your family.

My heart goes out to you all, here where I sit in France without knowing your mom or ever having met or spoken to her. I just know her friendly face through the blogging world and that she was a wonderful and kind lady and all of that energy shone through in her eyes and her smile. I am so terribly sorry that you are going through this loss of a mother, a wife and a friend.

Dear Mariah and family, I wanted to express my deepest sympathy in the loss of your beloved Mom. I am so sorry for your loss. Your Mom was such a beautiful and talented person. I was lucky enough to win a drawing on her blog last year and she sent me all of her new charts. That was so generous it is unbelievable! I mean who does that??? Only someone with a loving and giving spirit.

No words can relieve your pain; I only hope that all of these tributes from the stitching community provide some relief in this time of grieving.

I'm so very sorry for you all. I live in the area and never knew such a talented lady was so close to me. I wish I could've known her, as I'm a cross stitcher and a nurse, too. God bless you all.

I am so sorry. I grew up in the area and had no idea such a talented lady lived so close ( I now live in Clyde). God bless you all.
