In Memory of Trent

Born February 13 , 1973

Today would have been my Grandson’s 36th Birthday, but fate didn’t have it that way.
His name is Trent, and he was only 12 years of age. His Scout leader had taken him in his private plane to fly over the Boy Scout camp and drop some magazines and candy bars out of the plane. Something went wrong and the plane crashed, both the scout leader and Trent were killed. This happened July 17th 1985. Trent was an artist, he loved drawing and painting and always had a piece of paper and a pencil in his hands. Trent, we will love you to the ends of the earth and will never forget you.

Gramma, That is the perfect picture of Trent the smile and the pad of paper priceless.
I was pretty young when he passed but one of my most vidid memories of childhood was riding in the back of the truck with him after a fishing trip and laughing so hard we were both crying.

Love ya, Cora

Dearest Lorrene,
Words are not adequate to express my sympathy for your loss. Trent was a handsome young man. I know he was a joy to you and your family. Heaven is sweeter because Trent is there. May the Lord be with you. I know the pain gets better, but you never stop missing the ones you love.

I am so very sorry for your loss. I lost my brother when he was 15. It's horrible and we never forget, do we? So hard when our loved ones are taken from us way too thoughts are with you and your family. Birthdays are hard.
