She's being praised as a hero for pushing the stroller carrying two of her children out of harm's way.Styles appeared to have a life only most people could dream of. She was a well-educated woman with a law degree; a mother happily devoted to her three young children and had a husband who adored her."And it touched me when he said … how he was honored just to be her husband, that she was his wife," John Mihm, of Mt. Lebanon, said.Styles was killed when an SUV ran a stop sign. She was running with two of her kids in a stroller. She was training for a half marathon.The 20-year-old man charged with the accident may be facing prison time.For two of Lisa Styles' children, they'll grow up knowing that their mother gave her life while saving theirs."She acted to protect her children," Nihm said. "She gave her life for her children."Some mourners expressed the hope that the Styles family will find a way to forgive and not be overwhelmed with anger."I just hope that God will give them the strength to carry on and not to let hate enter his heart because his life was so drastically changed," Nihm said.
