Tricia had an alternate view of the world, a sharp wit and a great compassion for others.  Her talents were many including music and the visual arts.  So interesting to learn that she was behind the scenes with the cartoon character Barney.  May she rest in peace and find her way to another Great Adventure.

I have often thought of Tricia as we spent so much time together in Mrs. William's journalism class. I can see Tricia whipping out cartoons and illustrations for The Talon. She was an original, doing her own thing and contributing her world view with a sense of humor. She was a calm, creative force in the often chaotic world of Talon production. I do regret not keeping up with Tricia in our adult life. Condolences to her family and friends.

I had some classes with Tricia in 1967 and 1968.  She was friendly, kind and a truly beautiful soul.  When I ran for Student Council Secetary my Junior year against several adoreable cheerleader types using the slogan "May the Best Man Win.", Tricia graciously offerred to do wall posters for my campaign.  I did not win, but I had the most artistic and appealing posters of any candidate for any office.  I have often wished that I had kept the originals and posted only copies of the posters, for each of them was a magnificent piece of art that are now forever lost.  I did not keep up with Tricia too much after high school but enjoyed running into her at a few of the earlier reunions.  Her sweet disposition never changed.  I pray that her family and closest friends be comforted to know that Heaven welcomes gentle, kind and caring people like Tricia.

It was this routine - Tricia would drive over to my house.  She had the use of her father's Volare, don't know the year but to put the car into gear you had to push a button on the dash.  It was well worn and not particularly "hot", in fact, not hot AT ALL.  But, it did have one redeeming quality - transportation.  So off we would go, usually with Eileen Sulivan and Tammy Turner.  The four of us would drive around town endlessly asking "What da want to do?"  Reply "I don't know, what do you want to do?  What do y'all want to do?"  Pondering that question we spent hours together exploring our creativity and nerve.  What could we do, what were we willing to do?

Tricia Legault was one of my bestest high school friends.  We spent years together in Miss Speckman's art classes.  We had club Beaux Arts.  Because of Tricia I volunteered to be part of "Inherit the Wind."  Trish loved drama, or at least the crazies in the Drama Department.

She had a dry sense of humor and could be quite the cynic.  Last time I saw Trish, we were at a RHS reunion, standing off to the side, watching all of the activity taking place in the ballroom.  She said to me....."Just like high school, us off to the side looking in." 

Tricia Legault I will and have missed your presence.  Sweet dreams dear friend.  You were much loved. I Ioved and admired you always..
