Dear Susan, David, Jeff and Steve. So many memories from Parkside Drive!!! Susan and I were just the “little annoying girls” in a sea of boys at that Shaw house. I have nothing but fond memories of those days. Tripp will be missed. All my love to you!

Dear Jeff and Shaw Family - My Sincerest condolences on the loss of your brother. Although I don't recollect ever meeting him, I'm certain he was a great brother. Hugh certainly distinguished himself as a brave combat paratrooper and patriot. He also must have been a very loving and dedicated family man and friend for you all.

Our families spent so many happy years together as neighbors on Parkside. Steve, Trip, Dave and Susan - we shared more than a driveway. I looked up to Trip and respected him for his service in Vietnam. On his return and his entry into Carpentry, I admired him more. Always willing to help, especially with projects ‘across the driveway’. My parents appreciated all that he did for them. It’s so hard to lose a brother. I’m sure Trip will live on in your hearts and shared memories.

Steve, David, Jeff and Susan: It is never easy to lose someone we love but there is something even sadder when it is a sibling. My condolences to you and all of Tripp's family. As you know, he was my 'first love'. I have so many great memories of him. I am so happy now that we were able to see one another again at our 45th class reunion. May all of your memories help to get you through this very sad time.
