We want to send our deepest sympathy to your family. We met her in Belgium and she was a very good friend. She had someone paint a picture of one of our mini schnauzer, PJ. We still have the painting. Again your loss is our loss as well. She will always be remembered.

I'm so very sorry to hear of "Tricia's" passing. She always made me feel happy. She had a wonderful laugh & sense of humor. Loved to be with her as a Red Hat Sister!
