Loss of a strong youth advocate

9 Comments | Posted

It is a sad day for the children's mental health movement as Tricialouise Millard (Gurley) has passed away unexpectedly. We at the Network will miss her dearly and want to share with you the message sent out yesterday from the Youth M.O.V.E. National Board and staff.

    I only knew tricia through her father. I knew of her when she was born and i knew of her during her life. Always when I ran into Mr. Thomas, he would speak of tricia and how proud of her, he was. His unconditional love for tricia prove to be what a father's love is all about.

    Those of us in Westchester who knew Trish when she first emerged as a powerful voice for youth and watched with pride as she took on greater and greater challenges, share grief with everyone in the country who knew and loved her, and feel grateful for the joy and hope that her young life left as a light for all of us.

    I could have written the exact same sentiment as Frank. Raidiant is the right word. Tricia was glowing when I saw her. She transitioned suddenly from her earth walk and left us all surprised. she will live on in ur work and in our words and most importantly in our hearts. How blessed were all of us to know her!

    I am so blessed to have been able to bask in your radiance (and one of your amazing hugs!) only a week before we lost you, TriciaLouise. It is only a cliche that "none of us gets out of here alive," ultimately; so having had a few days to process my shock at the suddenness of your leaving us, today I am feeling happy to know that you are one of the lucky ones, my friend, to have been able to go out at the top of your game. We will long be inspired and energized by your brilliant example! Love, Frank
