We were honored and blessed in knowing Trish for a short while before she passed away. She brought light and joy in the times that we visited with her. The feistiness that we saw each and every time brings a laugh and a smile. She was interesting and always had a story or two that could keep you sitting on the edge of your seat wanting more. The places she saw, the people she met will forever be changed for the better as Trish came into their lives. Her grace and dignity and complete frankness inspires us every moment and we are truly better for knowing our sweet outspoken angel who is now looking down on us all. We were truly amazed at how pragmatic she was about the life journey that was ending and the journey that she would be beginning once again with her husband and loved ones that had passed before her. She was an inspiration in our lives and will be truly missed.
Our hearts and prayers go out to her family and to the dear friends; Lucie, Helen and Doug who were amazing friends and caregivers right to the very end.
Please accept my heartfelt sympathy for your loss. As you reflect on good memories take comfort in God’s promise to end all death and suffering. He also promises that we will be with our loved ones again here on earth enjoying the blessings of God’s new Kingdom. Revelation 21:4 “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away..” John 11:25 ” Jesus said to her: “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life”
