Trish was “Mawmaw” to a host of children, making sure the children knew how much she loved them. She was an angel to us here at the funeral home. She was constantly looking out for us, cooking food and bringing it to Hoppy and his employees. Trish will always be remembered for being a blessing to everyone and helping others in times of need. Words are not enough to express how everyone felt about Trish and her family. They have all been a blessing and help to so many.
