  1. Sending our prayers to the family and friends of Trey. He was a one of kind person and I was happy I got to know him. I didn't know him well….but over the years I got to watch him hop off the school bus and run to the front door. As he got older, I watched him whip that car in the drive, hop out of the driver seat and run to the front door. He was always so happy to be home. Occasionally I would see him play basketball on a sunny day. One time we were all the way in Florida and Jeffry received a text and it was Trey…..he wanted to know if he could use our hoop 🙂 He was always a happy person with a huge smile. I was fortunate enough to talk to him for a bit here recently. I am glad I did. And can you believe I seen him as a waiter in Bloomington, Cheddars, and Roadhouse. 🙂 He was a great kid and he will be greatly missed. We pray you find strength in the days ahead.

  5. Trey was a great young man! I met him in his freshman year of high school when he and my granddaughter dated. He would come over to eat frequently while they were dating . He continued to visit long after they broke up. I will miss his sweet smile!! Keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers!

  6. Freshman year he and my daughter katie had half day school. I offered a quick lunch at Caseys down the road in Argenta because he had track practice and katie had cheerleading practice. He jumped in my car before katie came out if the school and said" shotgun"! What a fun kid
