My sincere condolences go out to Trent’s Family. Trent was one of the coolest (in urban terminology) people I’ve had the pleasure of knowing. We worked together at MACI where we became friends. We would talk all the time about cars, fashion, music, family, and life in general. Trent was a genuinely good guy for sure! Last time I seen him in person he was at my house picking up a pair of exclusive Jordan sneakers he convinced me to sell him that I had never worn. He was a true sneaker head.

I went to the wake tonight, had to pay my respects but hated to see my guy in that way. Trent will be missed by many! Prayers and light being sent to his Mother, daughters, and entire family.

You were cool as a breeze. Smile contagious, laugh infectious, spirit so siren. I am still amazed that you are longer here with us on earth. However, "To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord". God's plan for our lives and departure is not always understood. To the family especially Aunt Glenda, know that Trent is at peace and still surrounded by love.
