I always loved getting together with Trish and Larry in August when they visited Minnesota for the races at BIR. She was a wonderful companion for Larry and they gave each other the best 10 years of their lives while together, Dan Hinrichs

I remember when we were making a weekend trip to Pierre one of the summers before she moved out there. It also happened to be the weekend of Sturgis, so there was TONS of bikers out. She was getting frustrated following this group of 20-30 bikers, so she put her little car into Sport mode, looked at me, said “don’t worry, we have a Turbo” and by the time we got past them, we were hitting curves at 90. That woman loved her turbo car.

I remember the time me n Danny were in the back yard throwing crab apples over the fence and almost hit a police officer we ran inside and the next thing we know someone was knocking on the door and mom answered it and it was that officer and asked questions and she said all of her boys had been inside all day and he finally left and as soon as she shut the door she looked straight at me and Danny and said "if you guys ever do that help me!!!" It was like she knew all along who done it. Love and miss her dearly but will never forget her
