God saw you getting tired,
And a cure was not to be,
So He put His arms around you,
And whispered … “COME TO ME.”
With tearful eyes we watched you,
And saw you pass away.
Although we loved you dearly,
We could not make you stay,
A golden heart stopped beating.
Hard working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best.

Trish will be forever missed by her loving husband, family and many dear friends. May God Grant Her Eternal Rest.

Arrangements are in the care of Forest Lawn Funeral Home of Hendersonville, NC. Online condolences may be shared at
