The following was the eulogy speech I gave at my sister Lisa's funeral.
On a cold winter day in Millington, Tennessee, Lisa Marie Shaner was born to Dave and Polly Shaner. It was January 21st 1963. Lisa was the fifth and last child that Polly would deliver and she was considered “the baby!” It was a title she never gave up and would have fought with you to try to take that away. She relished the title of “The baby!” And “babied,” she was! She had two older brothers, Dave and me, and two older sisters, Brenda and Julie! Lisa was now the baby, or “life of the party” at our house… and she relished that title! She had it made in the shade, she had it so easy… and we let her know that!
