Trina was the life of the office. Her cubicle was not far from mine and she always made me laugh with her “work frustration comments”. She had such a bubbly personality and was so friendly, you couldn’t help enjoying her company. Her laugh was one of a kind and it was often heard. She loved what she did and who she worked with. There is a void without her presence that is felt throughout the office. She is greatly missed not only as a coworker, but also a friend.
