Just last week, I spoke to someone ahead of me in a waiting line who was wearing a BML jacket. I asked him if he had known Trisha and he did. She's never far away in memory.

I still think of Trish and Vince frequently and of how sad it is that both are gone. Indeed, it is way too soon.

Still think of all the times she said 'come visit' and I said 'I will'! Love the picture.

What a great picture; it has so captured her. I said it last year and it's still true:
"As with some special people we meet, we don't have to see them frequently to maintain the connection. And so it is now."

After Trisha and Vince left Davis and then Trisha went to work at the Lab, she must have said a dozen times "come visit, stay over, and see the house". And always I would defer and say "we will". We still had lunch and saw each other at campus gatherings and a hosted BML BBQ but always there would be time to see the house and catch up. And then '... gone too soon ...', first Vince then Trisha. 

As with some special people we meet, we don't have to see them frequently to maintain the connection. And so it is now.

Trish, Vince, Tunny--all sorely missed. Wherever they are, I'm sure they're together having a blast and shaking their heads at all of us still stuck in traffic and worried about bills and politics. I envision them drinking wine, playing poker, or just laughing about great shared memories. So many good times...

Just thinking about her again today. Still seems unreal and that she's out there - riding, at a poetry reading, on a train … always on the move. It was as the music says … way too soon.

Now a year since that awful day when Trisha died - terrible tragedy. As I pass the days here at BML there are times when some thing, or event or person brings her back into my memory. Then I remember the many days that we worked together - what a fantastic professional and incredible woman she was! We miss her...

Trisha was the ultimate professional, yet gentle and compassionate. I value to this day working with her through exciting but sometimes hectic times at the Bodega Marine Laboratory. I was the director, but it was clear to me and most everyone at the Lab that she was responsible for much of our success. Her death is a real tragedy, but she will live on in my memory.

I first met Trisha when I was on sabbatical leave at the Bodega Marine Laboratory in 2001. I was immediately impressed by her friendly attitude and willingness to help as I settled in to the Lab. I will always remember the visit to her farm with Jim and Eileen Clegg and regret that I missed seeing her when she was in Nova Scotia this year. Trisha will be missed by all who knew her.

Trishia is an inspiration to all of us, and we will never forget her joy, caring, competence, and ability to keep a community together. I regret not spending more time with her in recent months, and at the same time, know that she would understand.

Sometime around 1975 or so Trish entered my life and almost overnight we became best friends. And thus an odyssey of friendship with all that it entails began. Through the ups and downs of any relationship, our lives endured and continually crossed. We kind of grew up together; whatever that means. To me it turned out to be the deepest most dedicated friendship anyone could ever have.
I miss her

My friend Tunny introduced me to Trish and Vince many years ago. While I hung out with Trish only occasionally, her warmth, her intelligence, and her "realness" made a strong impression. Trish had curiousity, intensity, class, and a well-exercised sense of humor. She will be missed, and I think all who knew her can only hope that she and Vince are together again. Both were incredibly special.
