These are not my words but this expresses what’s in my heart about the loss of my daughter Patricia Marie.
I thought of you today but that is nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday and days before that too.
I think of you in silence, I often speak your name,
All I have are Memories and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is a keepsake from which I’ll never part.
God has YOU in HIS arms, I have you in My Heart.
Love Mom

Hey Sweetheart. I cam across a poem you wrote, titled Causes. Thought I share it.

Men speak of revolutions making way for mighty kings. I speak of none of this, for I dream of humbler things.
Though it's true, inside, me, there beats a steady flame, but I feed it on injustice and nurture it in pain.
I anguish over the suffering of those who should not be. Those helpless, helpless people no one else seems to see.
I have taken up the torch then to do all that I can. Maybe burn away the brush cluttering up their eye and show them this word, prejudice, is but a lie.

It’s always a little somber when someone passes- especially unexpectedly. I always want to write down and remember everything about them and our relationship. You start to think damn I should’ve called more, should’ve showed up more, did I tell them how much I loved them every time we talked?

My Aunt Trish was unlike any other I’ve ever met. While we didn’t form our lasting bond until my late twenties it’s something I’ll never be more thankful for. She was there for me when no one else could be. She was the most hilarious person I’ve ever met. I always told her she needed her own comedy special. I literally have peed my pants from her stand up. Instead she spent a life of service in the military, as an RN, a mother, a grandmother, and an animal rescuer. She had the biggest heart for all animals, she basically had a farm in her backyard and was always texting me about the newest cat she rescued. I think the most important thing she ever taught me by showing me was to live your authentic self. Aunt Trish was quirky, lived to her own beat and was unapologetically herself. I’ll always admire that.

I’m lucky because with Aunt Trish I don’t have those thoughts of regret with not calling enough or showing up. We did that for each other. She knew I loved her and I know her love for me. Like she always told me I was the daughter she never had. Life is one constant reminder that this life on earth is short and people can be taken away from us at any moment. Call the ones you love, go on the trips you want to go on, laugh until you pee your pants and most importantly always always live your most authentic life. Because at the end of the day it’s too short.

Here’s to the Goddess Aunt Trish, love you 🖤
