Dear Charlie and Jones family,
I have so many wonderful memories of you all at Northbrook pool. Trina and I spent hours together watching all you children, drinking wine, talking and generally enjoying each other’s company. We used to visit in each other’s homes and Lara and Stacy were such good friends. Trina had the best sense of humor and her descriptions of you guys and events always cracked me up.

The last time I saw Trina was at a White Memorial weekday school program. We had a good visit and caught with each other at least a little. Trina was proud of you all and of her grandchildren.

I send condolences to you all. I know you will really miss her. I will keep you all in my prayers.

Love, Judy Tardiff

Dear Charlie and family,
Gary and I are so sorry to hear about Trina. Years ago, when we walked our dogs regularly through North Hills Park, we would see Trina and Rebel, and had the best time talking with her and giving Rebel hugs and biscuits! Trina had a great sense of humor, and we always enjoyed visiting with her. Please accept our deepest sympathy for your loss. Love, Celia and Gary Flowers
