I first met my friend Trish Owens in Kibler Valley, in an eddy between Basketball Falls and the 2nd bridge.  I immediately knew that I would enjoy paddling with her.  She was genuinely one of the nicest people I have ever met.  She was so positive and had one of the brightest smiles you will ever see.  Trish passed away on August 25, 2012, loosing a battle with cancer that many of us did not know she was still fighting.  I will miss her dearly.
