We are so sorry for this tragic loss. We loved Trish so much and valued not only her friendship and kindness, but her work on the MCCA board. It's just so hard to believe. Please know, Jim, that you and your family are very special to us and are here to help in any way. Sue and Tomm Schultz, March 26, 2020 I am so sorry to hear of Trish’s passing. She was a great mentor for me when we worked together at VISD. She taught me so much there while I was in high school and college pursuing my career goals. Her smile, her laugh and her beautiful singing always made my day! I will forever cherish the memories I have and know that she played a huge part in shaping whom I am today as a nurse practitioner. May the family all find peace and comfort during this difficult time.
