My dear friend Tricia, you were the best neighbor and I’m going to miss seeing you beautiful. You were a shining light in my life. I’m glad I got to see you a few days before and gave you a hug, not knowing it would be the last time I see you. We all needed you here, but God needed you more. Rest my friend. Sending prayers, love & hugs to Brianna, Michaela, & Joanna.
tricia was a wonderful woman and i was so lucky to have been able to know and interact with her throughout my high school years with her and her children. sending all my love to her family.
You were a great friend, we had alot of great times together, you will be truly missed
I am so sorry to hear this. She was such a fun person to work with at AT&T. Always had a smile on her face. Prayers for the family.
I’m so sorry to hear of the loss of your mom. I worked with her at AT&T until my retirement. She was a wonderful person and a great asset to the company. I have great memories of doing the Frostbite series with her at Forest Park. We had such great conversations. She was so proud of the three of you. Sending prayers to all of your family at this sad time.
My heart goes out to her family. Trish was w ay too young.. She was a great Mom and Grandmother. Trish was extremely competent and capable at her job at AT&T.. She was always helpful as a coworker.
Tricia was a rare warm and welcoming spirit. Her friendship was a gift. I am thinking of Brianna, Michaela, and Joanna now. I can’t even imagine. All my love from Virginia Wojtkowski.
Tricia has been so great to work with, across the miles, from Mid-West to East Coast. Although, it was as if we were sitting right next to each other at times. I will miss her tremendously. My heart goes out to her children and entire family. I know she loves you all dearly and will be with you forever. Wishing you strength and peace at this very difficult time.
