Very, very sad to hear this tragic news concerning Trent's passing. Very disheartened by this news! I'm sending sympathies and prayers to Trent's immediate family, relatives, classmates, and close friends from our family. God Bless! Rich and Leesa Stoffers retired CR-B Educators, Coon Rapids

I wish there was something other to put them friend or classmates, to verify what Trent meant to me, or what I know, I meant to him. He would do so much it such little amount of time he was around you. I have such close sweet memories with him that mean the world to me now. I never stopped thinking about him. I always wished him the best, but our paths never physically crossed. There is no words to exclaim him, his personality, and the connection I knew we had. He'll be missed. Look after me, like I know you always wanted to be there to do.
