Thanks again to all who have contributed to Trent's memorial fund. I am so amazed by your generosity. Trent's mom wants to talk to me at the funeral about the fundraising we've all done together. As many of you know, I wasn't close with Trent, but the story touched me emotionally because I know how hard it was to watch when I saw my mother deal with the loss of my sister. Even though it was incredibly painful to lose someone so close, I can never know my mom's pain to lose a child. Also, as someone that went to school with him for many years, I got to quickly see what a kind, happy, fun-loving person he continued to be. It is truly a tragedy to think of a family without a spirit like his in it.
I see that many of you have shared this fundraiser, but if you haven't yet, please go ahead and share with anyone that might not have seen it yet. I will be keeping this up until after the funeral, but I will make a point to put every contributor on the card containing the check unless you have donated anonymously.
