I can imagine the day to day struggles that are happening at your house these days. Please know that my prayers are that my son Hunter greeted Tristan with open arms.

At night I look up to the stars at Orion-a great mighty hunter of ancient times-and imagine that is where the boys hang out to watch out for us in the night.

Dear family of Tristan,

Thank all of you for the privilege of allowing myself and others the opportunity to know Tristan through the beautiful and touching video of Tristan's life.I must admit prior to viewing the video my thoughts were, here was a young persons life cut so short that he hadn't barely started to live his life. On so many levels this is true but after viewing the video I discovered how much Tristan was loved and his life enriched by so many friends and family that actually there was a lot of living packed into this little guys life in so few number of years!

Please accept my most sincere and heartfelt condolences for your and the worlds loss of such a beautiful human being. Although I did not know Tristan, the tragic news of his death and circumstances surrounding his passing hit too close to home for several reasons. Perhaps I will have the opportunity to share those with you someday.

In spite of Tristan's untimely death I still believe that our society has made great strides in curbing the act of bullying but CLEARLY there is still much work to be done. I would like to think that I could be apart of that mission by someday becoming an advocate for you and in memory of Tristan.

For now, the time calls for all of you to begin walking the long and difficult road of closure, acceptance and healing.

Once again, my heart goes out to all of you and may peace soon be with you.

The two scriptures read at Tristan's service are my favorite. No other words could have made my heart any lighter. My heart and tears are with all the family.

To the entire family of Tristan may your memory stay fresh in there minds and HEARTS you were a very happy young man and your life was taken WAY too soon. May they have some comfort in knowing you are in a far better place and you can look down upon all of our lives. May there be some miracle that this bullying must stop before another family must go through such pain. We were very glad to have known you and you will be missed by all, it breaks my heart to see your family in such pain. May
God give us all the strength we need to carry on and please fix this issue so another family doesn't have to through this. LOVE and MISS you Tristan. Clarence and Mickey Broker

I am so sorry for your loss. I pray for your family. I have a son that is Tristan's age, and I can't imagine what you are going through. Your strength during this time is admirable, and I know that the impact you will make spreading the word about bullying will change someone's life.

Love and light.
