It was with such sadness that I received this news. There are so many fond memories and I wish all of you peace and prayers in this difficult time. Our childhood would have been so dull without Trish and she will be remembered fondly for all of her amazing traits. She was always there for all of us, in so many ways. Very best from the Caron family.

Hello to Bob Junior and Family, First off, thanks Bob for the call. I always got a kick out of Mrs. Downing, always gave me a chuckle. It was not that long ago that I bumped into her and we had a fun time catching up since we had moved. She shared a lot and was so complimentary to Julia. Now that conversation is pretty precious. I always liked Pat and feel for the family at this very sad and heartbreaking time. I cannot make the wake, but I am thinking of you all and will pray for your peace and healing. She will not be forgotten. Pat always had a kind word, may she rest in peace. Kindest Regards, Holly, Mike, Jon and Julia

Trish- thanks for sitting with me through all of Ava's hockey games and cheering her on. You leave behind sad family and friends but I know the memory of your happy smile and hearty laugh will get us all through it eventually. I look forward to winter hockey games with your family and know that you will be cheering for Ava and all your grandchildren from your box seat bleacher in heaven. I will miss you.

We have many warm memories of sharing lawn chair or bleacher time with Bob and Trish at Burlington sporting events. It was so heartwarming to watch the love and pride that Trish had for her grandchildren. She also spread that love around to the friends of her grandchildren, as she always checked in with our Jacob (Eric's friend) whenever she would see him. What an honor it was to get to know Trish over these many years. We will be praying for comfort and peace for all those who knew Trish and are certain that there's another angel up in heaven watching over her family with pride.

My wife Pam and I pray that Uncle Bob and cousins Wendy, Bobby and Jamie (and their families) be granted the perfect peace of God at this time of loss and grief. We pray that this time for reflection bring unexpected joy and closeness into your lives. One of my most cherished memories is a fall day when Aunt Pat and Uncle Bob hosted a very fine Thanksgiving Dinner at their home in Sun Prarie. Many family and friends went deer hunting in the morning and I was blessed to harvest my first deer that day with my cousins near at hand. I was probably 10 years old. It was a wonderful Thanksgiving. Thank you Aunt Pat!
