Tricia and I grew up next door to each other in Jackson from childhood to college. We were like sisters with our birthdays only ten days apart. I will always cherish the memories. My sympathy and prayers to her family.

I have known Tricia since she was born. Even though we are first cousins, we have always been like brother and sister. We were only 22 months apart. We stayed in touch all the time. I will miss her and think of her every day for the rest of my life. Love and sympathy to Kevin, Cloys, Garrett and the rest of her extended family.

Tricia & I have been friends for over 20 years. I can't believe this has happened. She was a true friend to me. She was one of a kind. We had many laughs together. We always told each 'I love you'. My sympathy to all the family. I will miss her every day & I know she is in heaven walking those streets of gold.
