I remember the pool times.I remember how he giggled.I remember his playing. His room.His first bike.His teeth oh his teeth.His soccer games.His graduation .I remember him coming home to my house .The drive home the anticipation oh that drive.The playing with his brother.The first time he met his brother such a protective big brother and so proud so very proud.The Ritz with his brother.How him and his brother looked almost identical. The way he drove the grain cart.The way he begged for my truck oh all the begging.The love of his truck. The way he beat the hell out of his truck.The 4 wheeler he begged for and I gave him ugh and he was so very proud of it.The special times with his brother.The special bond and the talks he did with his step dad.The special times he had with his grandpaLarry how grandpa slap his big hand on his shoulder.Our last Christmas he was so proud. The walkie talkie conversations from me combining and him in grain cart.When we danced in kitchen. When he drove that white dully up and so proud wowser so proud how he had to show it off to grandpa Larry,how they looked it over The smile and proudness of that truck.When he come and parked his truck in my garage spot. And truly owned it for a weekend.The conversations him and Randy have about filters and Fuel milage and if I did this could I pull a trailer and could I or what do you think about and noise it making and mom can you buy this part for my pickup and oh that was making noise can you get this part too.When he’d tell me when you leave this farm to me conversations.oh those 1 sided conversations.(Now. who’s gonna get his stuff that he never knew I willed him) When him and I scooped out grain bin.When we went to church.When I told him to be honest and truthful.The last time I seen him.This baby was put here for a reason( my mom begged me to have 1 more.) A son ,who knew God knew thats who knew and planned it down to very minut second. There was a reason now I believe he is sitting up there in heaven and telling me” calm down mom and breath ” and now no more secrets and sadness and fear and hate and despair.

    My deepest condolences to all of Trenten’s family. 🙏🙏🙏🙏
    I loved seeing his huge smile when the kids would come home to visit. I’m not sure which made him happier, seeing that I had made a giant pot of chicken and noodles so they had plenty to take home or all the truck parts that Chris had. He was always so happy and full of life.
    Fly high my friend ♥️
