My heart goes out to each of you, Terry, Allison & Ashley. Trish always had a smile on her face and sweet words from her lips (even when we were running up & down the stairs). Only recently had I realized I really didn't know her. I was just beginning to learn so much about her wonderful life. She always was and will be an angel in my heart. I pray comfort for each of you in your memories with your wife & mother.

Terry, our heart and prayers are with you and Allison and Ashley. Trish will be missed so very much. Her facebook postings showed how much she cared for others. She never missed an opportunity to show her love for her friends and family. I am so glad that we got to reconnect at our 40th reunion. May God comfort your hearts as you cherish her memory.
