Trace was one of my best friends growing up. I remember lots of times spending the night at His Dads and going down to their auto trim shop behind Ray Fraziers in Newton. Shame i didn't keep up with Him as we got older. So sorry for the family's loss .

Trace and I have been friends since I was a young boy in elementary. My earliest memories of my first truw friemds were of him. He was my best friend. We always kept in touch no matter what. I talked to him a weeks ago and we do what we normally did...we caught up. I love you my loyal and faithful old friend. You will always have a special place in my heart. Im glad God let me cross paths with you. I will miss you. Until will meet again....

Trace was a bubbly little boy who had challenges in his life and grew up to be a son, a brother, a husband and a father. For these things be thankful. For these things, feel honored, and most of all, be comforted in knowing you were loved by him.
We are deeply sorry for your lost and the sadness and grief you are going through.
Our prayers are with you and your family. May you find comfort and peace in the memories.
