You were my refuge on earth. You freed me from my shell and opened my potential. Thank to you we explored the world with unbridled zest. We loved our long "walk and talks," books, playing games and puzzles, watching hummingbirds and silly dogs, smelling flowers and staring at the ocean, our coffee shop time together, cuddling while watching movies. We were giddy with excitement at every experience we shared as one. You loved travels and cultures, museums and art, local foods. We ran around destinations like giddy children, walking 10 miles a day around the world's exciting cities. Scores of people complimented your infectious, joy-bubbling energy, stating you were a "light" who made people happy just being near you. You were indeed my Godly light in this world. A stunningly beautiful person inside and out.
Message from a friend:
"You two were inseparable like no other couple I have ever seen. She was, without a doubt, the happiest person I have ever met. Since I have known you both, I have never once seen her not smiling, happy, or dancing.
She was always full of joy and reflected that joy to all those around her. The energy she had was incredible, and anyone close to her could feel that simply by watching her smile. She was truly a beautiful person, and I am very fortunate to have known her and be a part of her and your life; and I have terrific memories of our travels together." - Robert
Lisa, my eternal love. We were engaged on Thanksgiving Day because I thanked God for the astounding blessing of You. You passed away from my arms and into God's arms on our anniversary, May 29, after 21 treasured years together. I cannot wait to be with you again in heaven where there are no more unbearable sorrows or pain. I love you with all of my being. We were inseparable. There is no me without you. My sunshine, my flower, my honey girl, my precious darling, the treasured blessing of my life. My eternal love... My Lisa.
My eternal loving companion, my deepest friend and partner in everything we did. My gentle Lisa, you gave me surging joy with every glance and smile, every tender touch, just hearing your voice, seeing your handwriting, watching you sleep or braid your hair or moving about a room... it all made me dizzy with rushes of love. We were blissfully happy together, could never stop laughing, playing, hugging or holding hands. We never wanted a moment apart.
You danced in uniquely funny ways that made me laugh so hard I would cry, yet had the grace of a ballerina (stunning a musician so much when he spied you dancing, that he wrote "Lisa's Ballet"). A brilliant writer and creative talent. Elegant. Meek. Gentle. Astonishing grace in your every move, twirling through life. You ran like a striding gazelle. In your first year of gymnastics people assumed you had trained since childhood. Your silly, effervescent humor and playfulness tickled me with waves of child-like joy. You brought me the delight of classic 1930's - 1950's movies. You ceaselessly cared for me and supported everything in my life. Adventurous. Fearless. Hard-working like a Pioneer woman. And I relied on you for wisdom in God and life.
In Memory of My Eternal Love & Godly Treasure
Lisa Baroni (Lisa Stephanie Lynnette Baroni)
You were the gentlest, kindest, most Godly gift I could have ever imagined. Never an unkind word to anyone. Utterly selfless, you served others by God's word. You devoted your life to supporting me, caring for me and nurturing me in every manner. You sparkled the world with joy. And you showered me with love and attention that electrified & lifted my soul.
I WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER MY PRECIOUS LISA, MY TREASURE, MY FRIEND, PARTNER, COMPANION, BUDDY, JOY & INSPIRATION, MY WORLD, MY LIGHT, MY FLOWER & SUN, MY COMFORT & JOY, ETERNAL BLESSING & GODLY GIFT...
MUSIC we found to have searing emotional impact when we'd ponder our love for one another.
(when I'd hold Lisa and sing it to her, I'd change the words "love you for 1,000 years" to "Love You for Eternity")

Lisa SHOWERED me with Love Notes every single day. I'd find them upon waking, in my work bag, hidden in my desk. She'd frequently text me "love doodles" (our bountiful texts were a living "love letter." PLEASE see the PILL BAGS she made for me, on a prior anniversary - she loaded me with vitamins for health -- and always with her loving imprint.
Lisa's love and caring for my mother knew no bounds. I had never witnessed such sincere, unabated Godliness and care. Lisa orchestrated getting my mother from NYC to Laguna Beach, finding her the perfect sea-side abode. Lisa furnished every item in the house with loving thoughtfulness. Lisa would shop, help my mother put on medications, give her massages, held her hand whenever we walked anywhere. She showered my mother with balloons, flowers, parties, for every occasion. Endless...
My precious, Loving wife Lisa. My Light, My Joy, my Angelic Love. You were everything I lived for. Our love was an overwhelming blessing from God.
