  1. Dear Courtney,
    I was so saddened to hear of your sweet mother’s passing. Trisha was such a wonderful friend to me when we lived in Amarillo so many years ago before returning to Australia. We had fun and interesting moments together.
    I was glad we reconnected after so many years and I could call on her during our trips to Amarillo. Tricia loved Jorge’s and Butch and I would take her there for dinner.
    Her passing was devastatingly too sudden, but I’ll cherish our memories, together, forever. ❤️ My love and prayers to you, Courtney, and to your family.
    With love,
    Butch and Alexis

  3. I grew up with Patricia and her video this morning brought back some wonderful memories. Our parents were good friends and we “played together” a lot. I only wish we had not lost touch these last few years! What is loved remains in the heart and you will see her again!
