Actress Donna D'Errico, a friend of Lisa's who worked with her on the 2015 film Only God Can, shared a tribute to her late friend on Facebook Wednesday. “I just received news that my dear friend, actress Lisa Sheridan, has passed away. She was found Monday morning. I am sitting here stunned. Lisa and I filmed a movie together 5 years ago and became very close on set and remained close friends after filming ended.It’s so rare to find kind, gentle souls like hers in this industry, this city … even this world. Truly one of the most genuinely sweet and gentle people I’ve ever come across in my life. She brought a sweetness and bright energy to any room she happened to walk into …even in her darker times. I am devastated by this loss. I had just spoken with her and everything seemed great and she seemed happy and in good spirits. Everyone who knew her loved and adored her. Goodbye and goodnight sweet angel. I will miss you terribly. Please send up prayers for her family.”

3. Her "big brother"

Filmmaker Michael Dunaway met Lisa Sheridan when she was 14 years old. He also wrote a tribute to his friend on Facebook. “She called me Big Brother, and for all intents and purposes I was. I met Lisa when she was fourteen years old, over thirty years ago. We were immediately attached at the hip, true soulmates from minute one. I love you with all my heart, yesterday, today, and forever. Sorry that I can’t write more; it’s just still too painful. ”
