Many of you here on the Sclero Forums know Lisa Volz also know as Peanut to many of us. She passed away after a very long recovery period from stem cell surgery and many complications before and after this surgery. Our sincere condolences go out to her family.
Strength and Warmth,
Sheryl

As an ISN Artist, Lisa made absolutely darling custom avatars, drawings, and smiley faces for our main site, newsletters, and for Sclero Forums. They exuded her fun and upbeat spirit, which was evident in everything she did despite the enormous health challenges she faced. Rest in peace, Peanuts...you will be greatly missed!
Warm Hugs,

My condolences to Lisa's family. I came onto the forums shortly after Lisa's health issues took her away from them but everyone still felt her influence and talked about her with enthusiasm and joy. As the months went on people wanted to know how she was and talked about her with enthusiasm and joy. As more months went on people still wanted to know how she was and talked about her with enthusiasm and joy and now that she's gone, people will still speak about her with enthusiasm and joy.
