  • Julie & Eric,
    Your mom was the best. She’ll always be my “Mama Tricia”. Words can’t help with the hurt of her loss, but take comfort in all the wonderful memories you have. Heaven gained a beautiful soul. Thinking of you and all the family at this difficult time.

    Love you

  • Tricia was a wonderful neighbor! She welcomed us to the neighborhood and loved telling us about “old Ashley.” She checked in on how the boys were and with what they were up to. We miss her! You are all in our thoughts and prayers!!!
