Trina, Tuna, as I called her, was one of my best buddies in high school. We were able to re-unite in 2001 in St. Pete when she was battling cancer and reminisce about our great times together. She was a very special caring person and I miss her. She passed away in 2002.

One of the most interesting parts of this experience and this web site is remembering the friends that I went from first grade through high school with. I gave it very little thought until I began seeing names I knew from North Shore elementary and Northeast. Trina was among the first I thought of and I am really saddenned to find she is gone. Her Mom was very involved in school and a real sweetheart. She lives on in our lives.

I remember Trina from Junior High School. She was very interesting to have a conversation with. I did not know much of her life as an adult. Hope it was what she wanted.

Trina was the first friend I had when my family moved to Florida in March of 1956. She was a dear friend. She passed away August 2003 from lung cancer which spread to her brain.

Trina and I became friends in Junior High School.  We were usually in the same homeroom together from the 7th grade through our Senior year.  She was a very sweet girl.  And she will be missed. May God Bless her.

Trina and I were best buds at North Shore Elementary.  She lived right across the street from the school so we would go to her house after school and watch American Bandstand and dance, eat mayonnaise sandwiches (with a maraschino cherry on top!!!), and laugh a lot.  I remember her coming to my house and being terrorized by my cat, who would, for some reason, target Trina to sneak up on and jump up and land on her shoulder as she sat on the couch, causing her to scream and jump out of her skin.  I was, of course, laughing until I wet myself.  She was so much fun.  I wish we had maintained that closeness and stayed in touch as adults, but I have warm and wonderful memories of her.
