Thoughts and prayers to the family. So sorry for your loss. May your memories help comfort you all.  -Susie Cook (Silverthorn)

We didn’t know Patrice well having moved into Rockwell Corners just 2 years age. The contact we did have with Patrice made us want to know her better. We’re so sorry we won’t be able to do that. Our sincere condolences, -Dave and Sue Perry

I am so sorry for your loss. I am Tricie's cousin (Bob Ligda's daughter). I remember spending days on Aunt Betty's porch when we were young.  -Janine Montgomery 

There was a period in time when Patrice was a big part of my life. I’m happy that she had chosen Lou and I to help with her music. Those were great times for all of us. Life takes over and people get busy, but I’ll always remember her wonderful friendship and passion for her family and her music. May she Rest In Peace.  -Chris Sulcer 

I think I just want to tell you that Tricie meant a lot to our Valparaiso High School 1973 classmates. She will long be remembered for all she has done with out class and for that class. She had so many friendships and to us most likely you have similiar feelings she is gone way too soon. We think of her as that young classmate we went to school with for so many years and to us she will be forever young. We pray that she is enjoying all the fruits of heaven that she wholeheartedly deserved.  -Bill Taylor 

So very sorry to read about Tricie's death. She was my cousin, (my Dad... Uncle Jim & her mom Betty were siblings) Tricie introduced me to my husband almost 49 years ago! She sang at our wedding..."Sunrise, Sunset". She is my eldest son's Godmother. Unfortunately, time has passed too swiftly, and I always thought we could reconnect. May God comfort all her family and friends. Eternal rest grant unto her...  -Jan Bergstedt 

My condolences and prayers to Tricie"s family. She was a very nice and friendly girl in high school. After joining Class of 73 on FB we became friends. I thought oboy someone who was bra to play works with friends with me. After 4 or 5 games with her I quickly discovered that she was way out of my league for this game. She was very smart and even gave me chances at times. She will be missed by many.  -Joanne Johnson 

So sad to see this. Tricie was one of our neighbors on Chicago St. Memories go back to the 1960's and their white house with big front porch. Tricie was always so sweet ti us younger kids. Truly a kind soul.  -Barbara Hoyt Kidder
