Tribute to Tricia Seidler w/Video – On Patch


“I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge – myth is more potent than history – dreams are more powerful than facts – hope always triumphs over experience – laughter is the cure for grief – love is stronger than death”

I read this Robert Fulghum passage during Grandma Rose’s funeral service over 16 years ago. We search for words such as these to comfort us when we are lost in grief. We need to know our pain is understood. I think of this aphorism now as I am saddened by the death of Tricia Seidler, who was my Nurse Practitioner at All Saints Northside Clinic in Caledonia. 

I didn’t know Tricia well, not on a personal level. She knew much more about me than I did her. But one thing I know for certain is how much I admired and felt fondly of her. I have visited her many times over the years for myself, my husband and my children. And each time I walked away better than when I walked in. I may still have been sick, my daughter may still have had a temperature and medications may have not yet been received, but she had a way of making you Just. Feel. Better.

I am a mom, wife, writer, volunteer, eater of food, lover of animals and avid TV enthusiast. I am opinionated, honest, compassionate and sensitive. I can also be difficult, hard headed and emotional. I consider myself to have a great sense of humor and am very attracted to that in others. I am striving to live an authentic life. I am attempting to learn how to find happiness in the now. I always have hope to be a better person. That being said - I can be vulgar, negative and even a little bitchy at times. I say what I mean and my filter is often dysfunctional. With me, what you see is what you get. I have strong opinions and am quick to speak my mind. This can cause problems from time to time but I do not ever intend to hurt or offend anyone. With that - be warned. I do hope you enjoy my site. Thanks for visiting and have a swell day.
