Ode to Lisa

Yesterday, one of God‘s angels, Lisa Haze was called back to  heaven.

She was a dear and beloved friend who lost her battle with cancer.  The funny thing about Lisa is that she never let on how seriously ill she was.  I got a clue last March when we were in Malaysia together  and she gave me pages of notes on her medications and doctors.

But being sick didn’t stop her from dreaming or planning for the future.

Lisa is one of those rare-good people who you are blessed to meet  in your life.  She called her company, “Happiness Unlimited” because she just wanted everybody to be happy.  I don’t think I ever heard her raise her voice or be angry at anyone.

She was a gentle soul.

And one classy lady.

We would go to the “theatre” dressed to the nines.

Lisa was the definition of classy.

She had that golden-era Hollywood glamour of days gone by.

Her birthday was Nov 23 mine on Dec 1.  We are both Sagittarius and we would go to Disneyland to celebrate our birthday’s  together.

She was a dear friend, a confident and my cohort.  She was the one with me and my friend Jeannette on the beach at midnight making offerings to Yemaya, Yoruba Goddess of love and fertility in exchange for meeting our soul mates.

She had the voice of an angel.  http://soundcloud.com/msmontijo/lisa-haze

In her younger days she had a recording contract with Sony.  She was in three bands, The California Girls, The Skallywagz, and Lisa Haze & The Dr. Bones Band.  She traveled the world performing and singing.

We had plans to do music together.  I was going to  write the songs and she was going to sing them.   Today she is singing with the angels and traveling through infinity.  Lisa I was honored to know you and call you my friend.

I miss you already………..

    I don’t think I ever met Lisa in person, only talked to her on the phone many times, and we had many mutual friends. I hope she is singing with all the other beautiful angels who left this life too soon.

    I am shocked and profoundly saddened by Lisa’s untimely departure from us! I had the pleasure of meeting her in Herat, Afghanistan in 2005. We spent, along with the rest of the California Girls, three beautiful days hanging out, shopping, dining, and sightseeing, compliments of a C130 aircraft that showed up two days late to pick her and the band up. I shall treasure that precious time I was blessed to share with her. She was a courageous, curious, and caring soul. My heartfelt condolences to her friends and family. May she rest in peace! Timmo

      Thank you, Timmo, I still miss her almost a year later.
