Tricia... one year ago your soul quietly rose up to heaven. I miss you often but know you are here with us still. You surround me with your love (and sometimes those "blunt" motivating opinions) when I need it most, and I thank you for being here with me still... Love, Your Fellow "Nature Girl!" Hugs...

Tricia--Wow, how has it been a year?  I think of you often. Wonder about your response to the news of each day--Donald Trump, United Airlines, etc. Imagine those conversations with you and laugh. Your name still rolls off my tongue, like you are still here and part of our family events. That is a hard habit to break. I know you have found peace and I know God has a plan for your spirit going forward and it will be used for good!

I met Tricia in 1985 when she began working at the Harley hotel in kenwood. We quickly became friends, and Tricia would always listen to my girlfriend problems, and make me feel better.
We hung out together at U.C. spent a lot of time at the bars in Clifton.
I was so bummed when she didn't make it home for Christmas I so wanted to see my friend. I love you Tricia R.I.P. 

Sincerely Myron

What a wonderful friend Tricia has been all these years. In Jr High, I remember how much fun she was having with Teresa and I thought WOW, I want to hang out with them. Then they let me join in!!! So many adventures in the last 35 years :) Tricia was the center of an amazing group of warm and caring people that enjoyed each other whatever we were doing. I will miss her so very much. Sending love to Mike and her family and friends.

It is with extremely heavy heart that I share that a beautiful soul just passed over to the other side. She was an amazing woman and quite the adventurer! Tricia was my friend and Reiki student. I met her through my practice but kept her as a cherished friend. I had so hoped on seeing her at my birthday party but she just didn't have the energy and I couldn't wait to see her and spend time with her again. Our times together were cut short. I had always hoped on doing things with her and hearing more stories about her exciting travels as an airline flight attendant. Please send love and prayers to her family and husband.

Written by Tricia's friend Alison Pride:

"All life is lived in the shadow of its own finitude, of which we are always aware — an awareness we systematically blunt through the daily distraction of living. But when this finitude is made acutely imminent, one suddenly collides with awareness so acute that it leaves no choice but to fill the shadow with as much light as a human being can generate — the sort of inner illumination we call meaning: the meaning of life." --Maria Popova

Today I post this quote in honor of my friend Tricia, who lost her fight with cancer earlier in the day. Because Trish, more than anyone I knew, filled "the shadow with as much light as a human being can generate." She had a smile to light up a room, never went anywhere (and, as a flight attendant, she traveled all over the world) that she didn't make another good friend, and embraced life and its myriad experiences to the absolute fullest. We met one day coming out of chemo and had many laughs together despite the suckiness of chemo and radiation. She was a loving wife to Mike and mother to several canine children, and had a compassionate heart that reached out to encompass the world. My heart is heavy, but I like to think of her free now to travel anywhere she wants to, unfettered by silly considerations like gravity and security lines at the airport, and those human political constructs called borders. Travel on, my friend.

Tricia, little did I know when I walked into The Wine Basket all those years ago, that it would open up so many doors - and so many bottles!! The good times and memories will live in my heart forever. I feel so blessed to have been by your side today, holding your hand, when you took your last breath here and your first breath in Heaven. You will be missed by so many! You brightened any room just with your presence! Cheers, to you my friend! It's time to drink the good stuff now, cause life is too short!

On 5/13/16, my special friend Tricia Calhoon lost her battle with cancer, but won what she has always been searching for: life in God's arms, where her questions are answered and all that love in her heart can now reach it's zenith. Mike, love you man, you're an amazing husband. And Tricia, the lead singer and the once and forever Betty, I will see you again one day....

Tricia was the first friend my daughter met when she moved to Washington. They met at a dog park, and continued to share their love of dogs from that day on. I had the pleasure of meeting her a few times, and could see why she was a true friend. I feel the loss of a woman who had so much to give to all that knew her.Let us all learn to reach out and befriend those who need us, as she did.

Kind of strange, we went to High school together, but were not hanging around in the same crowds. We knew each other, but not well. Recently we started conversations on Facebook, and it turned out we were really of the same mindset. Really wish we could have gotten to know each other better as adults. She seemed to have such an open welcoming heart. She really touched me in just a few words.
