Tripp, this world is not the same without you. I will never forget your incredible kindness. My son Eric and his wife Amanda were so blessed by your kindness after the twins were born. What a beautiful soul you are.

My name is Liz Cavin. My brother David King introduced my to Trip. He and I ended up becoming roommates when my brother David moved out of the home they were renting together in ABQ. This was in 1994. I had never met Trip and decided to give being his housemate a try. He ended up being one of the best housemates I ever had and we developed a good friendship. I am sorry for your lose. He was so creative and such a nice person. Trip has been taken from us too soon!
