Dear Family,
My boss at work just lost his 19 year old son unexpectedly in October. He used to come to work with his dad at the store. So when I read of your loss it prompted me to send you these two scriptural sources which I gave to his dad. They are John chapter 11 and Mark chapter 5 beginning with verse 35. They both speak of Jesus resurrecting those who had died. It is comforting to think that Jesus when his Kingdom begins ruling over the earth will begin resurrecting all our loved ones. For more details visit JW.org and click on publications, click on page 5 and read the brochure When Someone You Love Dies. I hope these scriptures bring some comfort to the family and I do send my condolences for your loss.

My Deepest Sympathy~

Tears
If tears could build a stairway,
and memories a lane,
I'd walk right up to Heaven
and bring you home again.
No farewell words were spoken
no time to say goodbye
you were gone before I knew it,
and only God knows why.
My heart still aches in sadness
and secret tears still flow,
what it meant to lose you,
no one will ever know.

Tristin you were my best friend you were always there for me u protected me when I was in trouble u were a great guy I loved ur laughs and I love looking back on our memories my eyes burn from crying so much

Mitchell Xiong left a message on November 28, 2013:

Tristin you and me were super close. we were always with each other in 9th grade and I am ganna miss talking to you at lunch. You made everyone at the table laugh and it was always more fun to hang with you while the ppl at the table were doin their own thing. I remember you fixed my beats and I wish I could've gotten to know you much more. We were close but not to the point where you could tell me anything, but honestly i felt like i could tell you anything because you were someone close. We never got to hang out and that's the one thing I regret because you were honestly one of my best friends. Even though we didn't know each other for a long time I wish we would've talked more and did more things together.

As a friend of Julie Trickle's from the days when we were Tristan's age, I send my condolences to you all during this most difficult time. There are no words that will bring peace or comfort. However, I send prayers and the hope that you will find strength through God and your cherished memories of Tristan and the joys he brought to your lives.

Mary Ann Dykstra Hoffman left a message on November 28, 2013:

I did not know your son but he was in my son Spencer's phy ed class. I can feel you pain somewhat due to the fact that I just lost my dad on the 10th, but he was 84 years old and had a long life. I cannot begin to understand your pain fully in losing a child. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time and I am asking God to keep you wrapped in his loving arms and that he now protect Tristin and relieve his pain. Lord, I ask that you keep Tristin's family close and protect them from the evil of Satan at this time of suffering. May they turn to you in their time of need. Lord, I pray that Tristin be protected by your loving arms and that he is at peace. I ask and pray all of this in Jesus' name...Amen! God Bless!
