This is a gut wrenching experience that stays with you day in and day out. If I can help just one person get through it, it’s worth it.”
Trina suffered a tragic and unexpected loss about six years ago when her husband committed suicide. While her world was turned upside down in a single moment, Trina knew the best way to get through a dreadful situation is to help somebody else facing the same thing.
She discovered that people were uncomfortable speaking about suicide and family survivors were simply left to their own devices. So she founded LOSS, Loved Ones of Suicide Survivors, a support group that meets weekly. She is asked to speak at high schools and other groups, where she shares the message that suicide is not the answer. She is often the first person whom the Richmond Police Department and many funeral homes call when they encounter a suicide.
