Trinity left a lasting impression on everyone she met with her genuine love, concern and care. She was the go-to person for anyone in need of a friend or confidant. She loved browsing through cookbooks and watching movies. She was an avid reader and cook. She loved photography and was most excellent at making a pose whenever a photo op occurred. She modeled for Hollister and several photographers while in college at University of North Texas where she earned her BA degree in Psychology. She earned her “letter” jacket in high school by playing the Clarinet in Band for 6 years. She had “perfect pitch” and enjoyed Karaoke. She loved listening tomany different genre of music and hanging out with friends. Trinity enjoyed her visits to Ohio and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to visit family and friends. She was obsessed with Smoked Fish and EXPECTED anyone coming from the UP to bring her as much smoked fish as they could carry. Trinity had (her 3 Amigos) that filled her with love, laughter and serenity. Jesse5, Joy and Chris spend many evenings cuddled in Auntie T’s bed watching the Magic School Bus.

Trinity's pure heart, kindness, and lovely personality will always be with me. She always called me chica, and extended her home, food, and time if needed. That's just the type of person Trinity is and will always be remembered for. We shared laughs, adventures, new friends, and were also able to share just a portion of each other's lives'. I appreciate you and love you always.

I was with you for short times in every summer, an occasional visit to the UP, from child to woman, from punkin to trintrin to trinity, from a little carrot top to a blazin redhead, cute to beautiful, you will always be my " bonus daughter". I love you and I will see you again. Fly with your family in the sky and be free forever.

This was the exact spot where my sister Trinity Carlisle stood in front of when Cody took her stunning beautiful picture. I wish I could turn back time and take that pic myself with her in front of it smiling that amazing smile she always had. 😭😭😭😢😢😢
