Below is a poem written for Trish and read by her brother Nick at her funeral.

I’ll never forget the times we shared growing up playing in the leaves and snow
Every memory of you is locked in my heart and I’ll never let them go
Even the ones I wasn’t there for
Like Dusty hitting you in the face with the sorry board
And the time he peed on your head when you wouldn’t let him play with you and your friend
Those stories I’ll never forget
That time you had a friend coming over and told me and Dusty someone was coming to kill you had me so scared
You grabbed a butcher’s knife and said you were going to stab him when he got there
I remember going through my toy box looking for a weapon to use
I was terrified but I was willing to do anything to protect you
Your friend showed up and I was about to faint
You let him in and told us it was just a prank (thank God!)
You could always bring a smile to my face no matter what I was going through
If anybody could pick me up it was you
Anytime I needed to laugh you never failed
You were always there for me with a disgusting joke to tell (chin nuts)
You had a way of being incredibly annoying but hilarious at the same time
You could have everybody laughing and wanting to strangle you at the same time
I remember when mom rented you a limousine on the day you turned sixteen, you were so happy that day
It was so nice to see the smile on your face

I was so excited when you got pregnant with my first nephew, I couldn’t wait to meet him
As a baby I would carry him around and feed him
Months after he was born the first word I heard him say was “shit” and I thought that was so cool
I knew we would be best friends for life because he was a product of you
There were alot of hard times but you stayed strong and always pulled through
You had a goal in mind, nothing could stop you
I was always amazed at your strength

Fast forward a few years and there was another child on the way
You gave birth to another boy named Zane (who you lovingly gave the nickname Satan’s spawn)
He was one of the coolest dudes I’ve ever met since day one
The most amazing thing I’ve ever seen is watching these kids grow
I’m honored to be a part of their every day, teaching them everything I know

You took me to my first icp concert and had to lie to Everett to get him to come too
You said pantera was playing to get him to come with you
On the way he saw all the kids with painted faces “Who’s opening for them, Kiss?”
When he found out we tricked him, was he pissed
You had to send him to save me from the mosh pits

Visiting you in Florida was one of the best times ever
Going to busch gardens and fishing from the pier
Everything we did was so much fun simply because you were there
I’ll always remember every Christmas, thanksgiving, and holiday
And the summers camping at Gunn lake
I’ll always think of you when I hear 80’s rock n roll that’s for certain
And I will always think of you when I hear the word “beefcurtain”

We love you and miss you Trish. Love always, Dusty
