I’ve known Trisha for over 19 years. She was one of favorite long-time clients, who was very direct and to the point (in a humorous way). She never took any sass. I will miss this fine lady. My only regret is that I didn’t get to say good-bye.

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Tricia. She and I kept in contact over Messenger and we last spoke over the holiday season. She was a light in our school district, a person who you could count on for a honest direct answer to any question. She was one of the first to like my art and gave me confidence to continue. She was very kind and always gave great advice. She will be truly missed. Take care Craig, I am always a text away.

So sorry to hear of your passing but I know that you loved the Lord and I know that you are resting in Peace and for all Eternity you will be joyous with all the ones who have passed before you. One day we will meet again friend, and I am thankful to be able to call you my friend. Till then................
