Jimmy and the family,
I was so shocked when I was scrolling through FB and saw this obit announcement. It has been many years since I have seen or talked with my BSP Sister. I had heard Trina had some health problems, but did not know they were so serious. My heart is broken for all of the family. I always felt that my BSP Sisters were truly family. I remember the good times we had laughing, shopping trips, conventions, lunches, dinners, and parties. May God Grant you the grace to accept Trina's home going with peace and comfort. My love and condolences to each of you.

Trina and I met at Royal Insurance. We immediately bonded and became good friends. We were waiting to get on the elevator one day when an employee from another floor came up to us and said “I know you two are sisters. I can see it in your eyes”. We got on the elevator and laughed and laughed! Our eyes were no more alike than the man in the moon. We’ve laughed for years about that . We called ourselves SBC’s (sisters by choice). I loved Trina and will miss her. Prayers to her family 🙏🙏🙏

Trina has been a "sister" for many decades. I was so glad to be back in touch via FB. She was a very special friend and beautiful soul. My heart is sad for the family and friends but is rejoicing for Trina who is whole and well and free at last!!!

I remember the day she was born, I was so happy to have a sister. I sat in my rocker and our Mother placed her in my arms and she screamed her head off. But I loved that baby girl. Mother said I was the reason she walked late and talked late. I wanted to do everything for her. I have so many wonderful memories of all the things we did. Sorority conventions out to lunch, shopping so many things. I am going to really miss her, we spoke many times a day about silly things books and tv programs. I love you Sister.
