Trinity, I can't help but to remember your mom as the sweetest and kindest woman. She always welcomed anyone and was so genuinely kind. Words cannot express how saddened I am to hear of this tragedy. I am so sorry. I'll remember all the fun times we had together when we were young! Keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers!

My prayers and thoughts as you remember the good time with your Mother, Grandma, sister and daughter.
