Trina Cleary Lawlor Death, Obituary – This morning in the wee hours of the morning, my great friend of over 20 years, Trina Cleary Lawlor, who had been battling cancer for the past several years, passed away. She was 38 years old. My friend Amy and I were fortunate enough to be able to pay our respects to her during the last few hours of her life here on earth, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank her great family for granting us this privilege.
Since the time she was given her diagnosis, Trina has diligently campaigned for men and women of all ages to get themselves examined. As a result of her efforts, she has been able to save the lives of a significant number of other people while simultaneously fighting for her own survival.
Even though life had dealt her a very poor hand, she never gave up and became an example to many around her due of her perseverance. Her most recent source of enjoyment was modeling all of her new jammies and doing happy food dances over caesar salads; she was a fantastic role model for finding happiness in the smallest of things.
In fact, she was a terrific role model for finding happiness in the smallest of things. She served as a model for us. She was forthright, and there was no point in trying to change her opinion about the things that she enjoyed doing; she liked what she liked! And due to the fact that there was no one else in the entire world who was quite like her, getting to know her inevitably lead to falling in love with her.
And with her passing, she has left a tremendous hole in each and every one of our hearts. A figurine that takes the form of a unicorn! If love alone could have kept her here, she would have lived forever; nevertheless, for the time being, all I can do is hope that she is dancing in the skies and being hugged by all of those who loved her and went away before her.
If love alone could have kept her here, she would have lived forever. My friend, I am going to miss spending time with you.
