The Story

Trent was near and dear to so many of us, and he left us too soon. This fund is to help with any memorial expenses. This will be the most immediate need since this was such an unexpected loss.

Trent also left behind a young daughter, Annella, whom he cared for deeply. I am setting this up to go to Trent's parents who will likely be making arrangements, so if they choose to create a little fund for her, that's also an option. This fund has no restrictions, just to help memorialize someone who always had the biggest smile and heart.

We are so close to reaching 80% it's crazy! Thank you again for your generosity, everyone. Really. I have never done a fundraiser like this before, and I had no idea how it might turn out, but it's been great seeing all the kind words and seeing how much Trent really mattered to everyone. He really did touch our hearts in one way or another. No one anticipated the loss of Trent, and it's heartbreaking to imagine little Annella without her daddy in the world. If you think anyone on your page might be interested in contributing but hasn't yet, please do share it.

Again, I will close this on May 1 and give Trent's family the last of the funds, so please let anyone know if you think they might want to help.

We raised over 77% of our goal, and I was able to meet with Trent's mom, Linda, and give her the check. WePay, the payment processor, takes about 3% of the funds, so she won't exactly get the amount we raise, but it's still a good contribution. If you know anyone that wanted to donate but couldn't last week, I will keep this up until May 1 and then close it down. And be sure to share this. I know there were some that didn't learn of Trent's passing until later last week.

Once the fundraiser is closed down, I'll mail Linda a check for the rest that's been donated and deposited. Thank you all again for your time sharing and contributing to this good cause. Trent's funeral had a huge turnout and he will be greatly missed by many.

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.
