"Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him." -(1 Thessalonians 4:13-14)
My beloved sister, Tricia, was a believer and will one day be with us again, either when we go to meet her in heaven or when she arrives on that glorious day, walking behind our King Jesus. Because of that, I cry, because I will miss her until that day, and not because I will not see her again, because I most definitely will.
Tricia was and is my big sister, she was the one who walked us home after grade school, the one who led the way by graduating grade school, middle school and again in High School, all on schedule and without issue. A rarity for the rest of us. Try as I did, I could not complete high school on time, but years later, I was able to not only finish high school but gain a Masters Degree. I remember Tricia telling me how proud she was of my accomplishment, and maybe she never knew, but that meant so much to me. I will miss her, but I am comforted by the knowledge that she was a believer in Christ, accepted Him in her heart, and because of it, I will see her again one day, as my sister in Christ.
Tricia was with me when our mother went home to be with the Lord. I cried with her that day, we shared in sadness, but we knew that one day, we will see her again. Tricia is with our mother and the rest of our saved family, that I am sure of. Tricia fought hard during her last days on earth, but the Bible tells us, when we are absent in the flesh, we are present with God.
Tricia is with God today and forever more, but she left this earth, a mighty woman of God. Thank you Tricia, for being a good sister and never good-bye, but until we meet again.
Love Always your Brother, Michael

I remember Tricia since we were little girls. both our grandfather's knew each other. Tricia was a sweet woman of God. kind and giving. i am going to miss our chats and talks about God and the bible. she always thanked me for encouraging her when she was going through things in her life. i was there to support her and she always gave me advice when i had problems. i will always cherish our talks together. i remember when she come over and drop my kids off she had this pretty perfume smell like flowers and they would be on my kids clothes. i love that smelled she loved my kids but one thing i remember when my son mark was a baby in diapers Tricia bought him a whole box Oreo cookies just for him lol i will never forget that. but she loved all my kids. . she would tell me about her daughters going to college and how proud she was for them also about her vacations with her husband Steve. and her son steven in spite of what she had she fought it til the end!! she didn't let cancer beat her she gave me hope and encouragement she was brave she was a warrior and fighter. this is why i love that pic she has with the sword!! i know she is smiling at us she is happy and with Jesus now cancer free!! im glad she got to finish the book i send her about pastor Diego Mesa journey what he went through with cancer. she told me she bookmarked certain pages she told me one day i am going to walk down the aisles at abundant living church and meet pastor Diego mesa she never got that chance but i know someday she is going to meet him. i miss you my beautiful friend your always going to be in my heart i will never forget you.
2 Timothy 4:7-8
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that Day, and not only to me but also to all who have loved His appearing. Amen!!
