My dear Aunt Trish,
The last memory I have with you is that of all of us eating breakfast together as a family for Jil's wedding. It's a happy memory because it brings me a sense of togetherness and is full of love.
As soon as I met you and we talked about the Tudors and King Henry VIII, fantasy novels, and of course, your love of the color purple and unicorns, I knew that you were destined to be a part of my family. We had so much in common and you lit up my Uncle Cliff's eyes and made him incredibly happy in a way no one had before. I am so blessed that I got to know you. You were such a kind, loving person, and full of so much life. I wish I could have lived closer and had been able to spend more time with you.
I will cherish the unicorn that you wanted me to have, and I have displayed it where I can look at it every day and think of you. I miss you Aunt Trish and hope that one day I will be able to see you again.
Love always your niece,
"the longer the days are, the more distant is the sun, and never-the less the hotter; so is it with our love, for by absence we are kept a distance from one another, and yet it retains its fervor" - Love Letter from King Henry VIII to Anne Boleyn

To my beautiful Aunt Trish,
Words cannot describe the presence of love and happiness that you shared with this world.
I remember a time that you personally shared a concept of beauty that was in itself unique and wonderful. It was during our surprise winter vacation to Colorado Springs ten long years ago. I, 13 at the time, had a mouth full of metal and was at an awkward phase of my life. My sisters had made a mocking comment about my extremely large feet that were less than compatible with my growing body.
Aunt Trish, you had come to my aid with an unforgettable comment, simply stating, "A strong foundation is necessary to create the most beautiful flower".
Even though this may have seemed like a passing moment or a silly comment, it is something that I have forever carried with me and I think of often. Thank you for bringing light, smiles, and love into my life, my Uncle's life and all of the lives of everyone who ever had the grace to meet you.
May you rest in peace, out of pain and restraint, now free to fly with the angels in heaven.
All of the love in the world,
Jackie and Davey

Aunt Trish, your love knew no bounds and you always greeted us with kindness. We knew you were often in pain, but rarely could tell because of the brilliance that was your presence. The smell of flowers and candles that met us when we walked into your home or your arms, always a reminder of the sweetness of your soul. You're gone now, and though the candles no longer burn and your smile no longer lingers, your love and memories live on in the friends and family who loved you. We know you are watching out from up above, but we promise to stay close and be there for each other and Uncle Cliff.
"Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near, so loved, so missed, so very dear."
We love and will miss you,
Jil & Ryan

My Dear Aunt Trish was open arms from the moment I met her. Every visit was a loving experience filled with laughter and smiles. She had a beautiful soul and an open, kind heart. Our love of reading--history and fantasy was an instant connection and only showed an ounce of the imagination and possibility she saw in the world. Her strength and poise in her last days made a wonderful impact on me. I will carry her love on my life journey and will never forget the joy she brought to my Uncle Cliff and my family.
Many prayers and endless love,

My Dear Brother Cliff,
Words can not express the sadness I feel for the loss and pain you are going through. Trish was such a beautiful person and I loved her dearly. I miss her so much, but I know she is with the Lord. The following bible verse gives me comfort and I hope it will do the same for you.
THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD
A PSALM OF DAVID
1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures. ?He leads me beside still waters.
3 He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness? for his name's sake.
4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, ?for you are with me; ?your rod and your staff, ?they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me? in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. ?
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD? forever.
I pray that God gives you peace and joy in the memories you have with Trish and the knowledge that you will be with her one day in Heaven.
I love you Cliff.
Bye for now my Beautiful Sister "Trish", I Love You! You will be in my Heart Forever. Until we see each other again.

Pat I will miss you. I remember at 11 years old we smoked cigs on the hill behind my house. Then the seat belts you had us put in your Olds 88. You were there for me in hard times. I will miss you so much, your cousin Brian. (Leverett, ma)

I am saddened by the loss of Trish. I knew her when we were both teenagers in western Massachusetts. She was a very intelligent young woman, so beautiful, and spent many hours writing to friends using her artistic handwriting. I knew her as Pat when she lived with her grandmother in East Longmeadow, MA. She lost her mother at a young age and this loss haunted her for many years. I reconnected with her a few years ago on Facebook and I was heartened that she had finally found the man of her dreams, Cliff McCullough. I know Cliff is grieving now and I pray to God that he find comfort. Cliff, thank you for bringing years of joy to this beautiful lady. I know Trish is now resting in Heaven with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
