I personally had mixed feelings about the whole Lisa dying thing.
Personally I thought the story was beautiful well done. It was very moving and touching. I have always loved Lisa. She rocks!!! She was so amazing during her battle with breast cancer. She fought so hard and was so strong.
However, I don't like that she died. I think once she met Darin she could have gotten a bone marrow transplant. The weird thing is that women who are diagnosed with stage one breast cancer, it usually doesn't come back much less metastasize. I also think to that Tom Bautik should have showed that cancer is a fight that can be won instead of having Lisa die. Still it was very moving and had me all choked up.
The love between Les and Lisa was beautiful. It truly was a story of love. Even though Lisa did die I liked how they showed that death can be a beautiful process and that our loved ones don't ever really leave us.
I do like now that they still have her presence in the strips, but I still wish that she was alive.
P.S. BTW does anyone have the death penalty arc and when Lisa started her own practice. If so, would you please email me a copy?
