Tricia enjoyed anything mentally stimulating such as puzzles, word searches, cribbage, and card
games. She found great joy in music. She had a loving heart and a wonderful memory for detail. She
commemorated every holiday, anniversary, and birthday with a card. Tricia made friends wherever she
went, including her dear friends at Care Pro in South Weymouth. She was truly a gift to all her friends
