Sadly Lisa Bio- Sadly Lisa Wiki
Naomi Watson, 29, from London, was hired by Robert Harris, 49, to look after his wife Lisa and work as a nanny to their then nine-year-old daughter in 2012.
Sadly Lisa, who suffered from motor neurone disease, passed away aged 41 in 2014.
Just a few months later, Naomi unexpectedly fell for her boss – despite their 20-year age gap and cruel comments about her being a “gold-digger”.
The couple are now engaged and living in Calpe, Spain, with Robert’s daughter Molly, 18.
Naomi, a secretary, tells Fabulous: “Lisa was an amazing person who will never be forgotten
“Admittedly, I found love in the most unusual way. But it goes to show, after the most painful of losses, it’s still possible to find happiness.”
In 2006, Naomi relocated from London to Spain with her family.
Then in March 2012, she posted an advert looking for nanny work on a local Facebook group.
Hours later, Robert, a shade sail business owner from Birmingham, messaged her.
She says: “Robert told me his family needed a nanny. I said how I had four years’ experience.
“The next day, he interviewed me at a cafe. He said he lived with his wife, Lisa, and their daughter, Molly.
“He told me they had been together for 24 years and were childhood sweethearts. I thought it was adorable.
“But I then discovered Lisa had a terminal illness, motor neurone disease. It meant her nervous system had nearly shut down.
“Robert needed someone to care for her and his daughter while he worked. I knew it wasn’t going to be easy but it was clear this family needed me.”
He next day, Robert offered Naomi the job.
She says: “Weeks later, I walked into the house for my first day and Lisa hugged me.
“She thanked me for helping them out. She was so lovely.
“I met their daughter, Molly, and she was sweet too. After that, I took Molly to school every day and kept the house spotless.
“In the evenings, I helped Molly with her homework and we played together.
“But as months passed, Lisa’s health began to deteriorate and eventually, she was bedridden.”
After that, Naomi cared for Lisa around the clock, bathing, clothing and feeding her.
Every night, she made sure dinner was ready when Robert came home from work.
Naomi says: “Soon, they began inviting me to eat with them at the table.
“Lisa and I also grew closer. She always cried about how hard everything was and it broke my heart. We became close friends.”
In 2014, Lisa’s condition worsened and she was unable to speak. She was eventually taken to a hospice and passed away shortly afterwards.
Naomi says: “Robert came home, crying. He broke the news to Molly, who was devastated too. It was horrible.
“After that, I knew Rob and Molly needed me. I began staying later to eat with them and became a shoulder to cry on.”
