In memory of Lisa Baldwin
Lisa was the Office Administrator for Dynamark Graphics Co., a manufacturer, and distributor of marketing materials, for thirteen years. She loved dogs and UT football and, in her time off, enjoyed bass fishing at any of the mid-state lakes. However, her favorite thing to do was to be Rah Rah to her three-year-old grandnephew, Eli. They have a standing date for Saturday night and always have fun.  She is an avid supporter of United States veterans and was an active member of Hero Hunt Inc. since the conception.  She was a strong believer in paying it forward.
