    Lisa had the chance not once but twice to make a good break into television. She was a talent little girl who had the oppertunity to work on one of the oldest soap opera's in the business. She had a good run for four years as Cricket on "As the World Turns." If she had good parenting, and supportive loving family, should would have had the patience to wait for her next part. Lisa first 34 years are sad with potential loss due to her mother's and her own drug problems. I am glad that she has pulled her life together today. I just selfish wish that she could have continued in television. I really enjoyed both her role of Wednesday and of Cricket.moreless
