    I met Trina while she was working at the Atlantic Market and I knew right away how warm and loving she was. We'd talk and gossip and I always left our brief interludes with a smile. It's not often that a person you meet while shopping makes such a lasting impression. She shared with me how much she loved her family and her animals. Her loss must be so devastating to those who loved her as, since I knew her little, her passing as touched me deeply. Linda

    Trina is the most giving, most loving person and friend I have ever known.One of her two birds had gone before her.God gave her as a surviving one her favorite,one who would whistle for her when she came home from work. She was so relieved and happy about that. She loved you all very much and was so proud of all of you. The picture you chose was beautiful, perfect.She knew she had a last chance angel.

    My deepest sympathy to Trina's family for the loss of such a dear sweet lady. She was a good friend of mine and I will miss her dearly, but not as much as her mother, and other family members will. My prayers to you all and peace be with you all. REST IN PEACE MY DEAR FRIEND!!!
