Liz Sallese Goff  HAVRE DE GRACE, MD
My name is Liz Goff and this page is going to benefit the son of Coach Kristie Quigley who was killed in the charter bus accident in PA yesterday morning. Kristie was an amazing woman whose heart was the biggest I've ever known. I am setting up this page to help her husband, my childhood friend of 27 years. This money will go to helping pay for Gavin's living expenses and school as his dad is now a widower. No one should go through the pain and sadness this family is face with. Kristie was there for my family when my son passed and I will be there for hers. Please donate whatever you can to ease the financial burden of this family! With my heartfelt thanks..... Liz

It's been almost a year since Kristie left us. Glenn and Gavin are doing well. Not a day goes by when I don't think of her. She would have turned 31 on February 22. Please continue to pray for healing for the family and her team which started their season this past week.

I want to thank EVERYONE for their continued support for the Quigley and Trionfo families and friends. Those who loved Kristie and Jackson are finding comfort in the generosity of all of you. The kind words, the fundraising efforts of teams and people who did not know the family, have helped ease some of the pain. I personally look at this site everyday and am amazed by you all. THANK YOU!

I haven't updated in a few days, so here goes. The lacrosse community has rallied support for the Quigley and Trionfo families on top of all of your support. Play 4 Seton Hill is selling tshirts that will benefit Gavin and Millersville University is selling sweatbands for onelaxfamily. Countless schools are askin for donations at their games and are playing in memory of Kristie an Jackson. THANK YOU!!! I do not want to forget the players affected by the accident as well. My thoughts and prayers are with those players as they physically and mentally heal from this tragedy too. Thank you again for your support!

I want to thank everyone for your continued support for the Quigley and Trionfo families. The viewings were yesterday and today.... The outpouring of love and support in person and through these donations has helped the families immensely. Nothing will bring back our beloved Kristie, but the families have told me they are checking this site and reading EVERY comment made. It brings them a sense of peace to see how well loved their daughter, daughter-in-law, sister, sister-in-law, wife, mother, friend, niece, etc. is. Here memory will live on through her family and her son. THANK YOU ALL! We're going to raise our goal again.

I'm Eric Triplett's brother and I wanted to share a story about Christy. She used to be a regular at our house. She was so good with my son when he was just a little guy. She would sit and play with him and listen to his stories. She would tell him "your so cute would you please be my boyfriend?" My son, Justin, would go to preschool and tell all his friends, "I have a girlfriend named Christy. She plays leggos with me." She was such a beautiful and caring person. I'm so sorry for your loss. I pray that God brings you peace in this difficult time.

Words cannot begin to describe how touched we are by the outpouring of graciousness and heartfelt warmth from all that have found it in their hearts to support Gavin and Glenn. In our time of pain and suffering, you have all givenus some peace and solitude knowing how much our daughter was loved and respected. She spent her shortened life reaching out to all that she possibly could and our only hope is that her message continues through as many people as possible. Love, Kristie's mom and dad/ Mimi and Pop-Pop

I just wanted to take time to thank each and everyone one of you. You all have shown this family that Kristie was the most amazing Wife, mother, coach, daughter, and best friend. It is certainly amazing to see people whom Kristie never met giving support. She has touched so many lives and it gives us great comfort knowing that (not that we didnt know she was beyond great already). We appreciate to overflowing love and support. Please keep it coming. Thank you all, Love the entire Quigley and Trionfo family.
