Trish was a great person. I can say she made me a better person. Me and her would disagree sometimes, but we would always have a solution in the end. If I didn’t know the answer I know she would. I can’t thank her enough for what she has done. Me and her talked about how you never knew how influencial people are until something tragic happens. I always knew Trish could change things, she never needed to use fear, just her words of influence.
So many wonderful, funny memories of her. Her Buffalo game at Hollywood casino. She always said, that one is the lucky one. So, if you end up in Hollywood casino, try the Buffalo slot machine.
I would always make her my strawberry lemonade for her 4th of July party. She made a wicked drink with that lemonade.
I will miss her, and remember what she has taught me in life. To Mel, Josh, Megan and the entire family my prayers are with you.
