LISA STARK April 21, 1970 – September 12, 2014

Peacefully and on my own terms, I left this world on September 12, 2014. I am survived by my parents, Robert and Elaine Stark, my sister, Shawna Downey (Darin), and my sweet niece and nephew, Jordan and Joey.
Since adolescence I have struggled with mental illness; it has caused pain and suffering not only to myself, but to my family and friends. We can finally rest.
A celebration of my life will be held on Friday, September 26, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. at The Winnipeg Squash Club located at 275 Stradbrook Ave. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Klinic Community Health Centre (www.klinic.mb.ca).
“I do not fear death. I had been dead for billions and billions of years before I was born, and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it.” Mark Twain

Lisa:

I cannot process that you are gone.
I cannot process that you are dead.
I cannot process that you took your own life.
I cannot process how you took your own life.
Lisa:
I cannot process that you are gone.

You understood me,
You got in my face
You challenged me to get it right,
Yet,
You hid behind walls,
You cried, were in pain,
Alone.
I understood your pain,
You understood mine.

Lisa:
I cannot process that you are gone!
I pray your tortured soul
Has found some peace.
Good night my friend.
