Trish was my best friend.... a chosen sister. I am missing our phone calls so very much. So many laughs and memories shared over the past few months. As sick as she was with the cancer, she was strong, hopeful, and fought as hard as she could. Our days together remain in my heart and mind. I miss her so very much. She was my rock during difficult times in my life, and I will never forget how much her being there helped me to overcome past challenges. Trish was an angel who walked the earth. Truly a huge loss to all who knew and loved her.
