    No words can ever describe the loss of a child. I knew Tristan my grade 7 year of middle school and since graduation he has reached out to apologize for the actions of others. He will always be remembered as an amazing and loving and caring person.
    Big hugs

    What a beautiful, beautiful boy and by the comments I have read he was as beautiful inside as he was on the outside. I have not stopped thinking of you guys since I heard the news and wish I could something to ease your pain but I can't do anything other than pray for you to help give you strength to help you through this. I am so very sorry for your great loss, hugs to you all!

    Sending our deepest condolences to your family. Very, very sad to hear this. We met Tristan through our son Kyle. Tristan was a very considerate, kind and loving young man who got into the hearts of many people which will never leave. My son and daughter both held him very close to their heart. We will miss him dearly.

    Chandra, Lance and Eli, we cannot even begin to understand the heartbreak you are going through. Please know that we are thinking of you.
    The Crowleys
    Do not stand at my grave and weep
    I am not there. I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow.
    I am the diamond glints on snow.
    I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
    I am the gentle autumn rain.
    When you awaken in the morning's hush
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in circled flight.
    I am the soft stars that shine at night.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry;
    I am not there. I did not die.

    I am so saddened. My heart is breaking for you Chandra, Lance and Jeremy. Tristan has been in my thoughts since I heard the news. He was such a gentle soul. Tristan was the type of young man that you never forgot once you met him. Always so kind and polite. He always took time to chat with me whenever I saw him.
