    I am so sorry for this tremendous loss. Trisha worked in our department at Bioran then Quest Diagnostics for many years. She was exemplary in her dedication to hard work, accuracy and excellent patient care. In addition, she was always very pleasant, enthusiastic and radiating positive energy all around her. She was also a friend to many of us in addition to being a co-worker. She was always concerned for our well-being. I cannot forget all of the hard work she put in to organize a surprise 50th birthday party for me. She did not have to do this, but she did because she is a kind and loving person. I will always be grateful for this and many other nice gestures she displayed to me and others during the years we have known her. She added a lot of glow to our lives.
    We will miss Trisha dearly. The world has lost a wonderful person, but I am grateful for the blessings that her memory has left us with. May she rest in peace. May her family find consolation and healing. May her memory be eternal.

    We are so very sorry for the loss of our dead sweet friend. Tricia was one of a kind. The most caring, gentle person we knew. Tricia became my friend at Bioran in the 1980’s.
    We used to go to with our other dear friend Maureen Keenan to lunch twice per month on Thursday pay days. Tricia would not go out in the rain, which I have such fond memories of laughing when she got caught with wet hair!!
    Over the years we would go to dinner, we continued to remain great friends.
    It was with great joy we welcomed Ernie into our lives.
    WE WILL MISS THAT SWEET SMILE. May you rest in peace, Godspeed my dear forever friend.
