I loved Trina. She was my weather and news person. She kept up to date on birthdays, anniversaries, and the latest drama near and far. She treasured family most of all and that is what I realized when I tried to get the pictures together.
She and John had an open door policy. Trina loved decorating the house with all the holidays and kept a very clean house. They took in everyone and turned no one down.
Her pride and joy was her granddaughter, Aria.

I’ve known Trina since middle school. I had actually been in the same grade with her husband, David.. We reconnected when our kids were small and I cut her hair.
I loved this woman! She meant a lot to me and had a heart of pure gold. If I needed anything.... she would have supplied it or tried her best to. She was my ‘Go to’ and helped me so, so much this past year when I lost my 26 year old , Nick,,( whom they were close to.) I will have to sadly admit I’m going to miss getting those calls or messages,,,”Kim, do you think you could cut my hair “? ....
I felt very loved by her and will keep a special place in my heart just for her forever and ever!!
Love u Trina, until we see each other again! 💕💕💕

Trina was a loving wife, mother and friend. She was always so welcoming of anyone coming to her home to share time with her family. It was so fun to watch her interactions with her precious grand daughter. I will remember Trina's hospitality and the love she shared with all! Mary
