Nobody should ever have to endure this type pain. I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. Tripp brought joy to so many people. I truly believe that his spirit was too great for this earth. I pray that you find strength and comfort in the many people that love you.
God saw you getting tired
And a cure was not to be
So he put His arms around you
And whispered "Come to me."
With tearful eyes we watched you
As you slipped away
And though we loved you dearly
We couldn't make you stay.
Your golden heart stopped beating
Your tired hands put to rest
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best.
Leslie and Larry - You are so much in my prayers and thoughts So sorry Anne Winston
I knew Tripp's grandparents at Riverside and am so very sorry for your loss. Please know that the Skinners' thoughts are with you.
I don't know you, but came across your page on fb. Even though I lost my son 7-1/2 weeks ago, there are no words that I can find to bring you comfort at this time. During your moments of despair, hold on to Sweet Tripp's smiles and laughs. My deepest condolences for the loss of your son.
Bea and Gary - I have just learned of your loss and am finding it difficult to grab the words which will tell you how sorry I am for this. Please know that my prayers and thoughts are with you and your family at this time. May God Bless this little Angel and keep him close.
Gary and Bea,
My deepest sympathy goes out to you and your family. I can't think of any words that would bring you comfort, just know you all are in my prayers.
I cannot imagine what you are going through. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you during this terrible time. I am so sorry for your loss.
My heart is broken for you.No one can feel exactly what you feel right now, but we are desperately saddened and so grateful to know that the Lord can somehow give you comfort that we are incapable of. Father, please deliver your supernatural comfort and help to this family now and in the days ahead. Amen
I can't get you two sweet parents out of my prayers. I will continue. I can't imagine your loss but will continue to pray for strength. love dana

Heaven gained a beautiful angel. I am so sorry for the loss of your beautiful little boy. Your family are in my thoughts.
(friends with ashley gremillion)
I didn't know your family or your precious little Angel Tripp. I am sure he was a delight. He is a beautiful child. I am so sorry for your loss. Parents should never have to bury their children. Praying that God gives your family peace and strength.
I've never met Leslie, or Larry, and certainly never met dear little Tripp. Nor have I had the blessing to have a chance to have witnessed the sweet smile of your beautiful boy first hand. I am just a stranger... But, between the images of Tripp and the outpouring of emotion and support for his premature departure from this life to the next, please know that on this day oh so many grieve with you by your side.
May God Angel rest in peace. The Angels are rejoicing, remember one thing God will take care of you through every storm that may arise. May God bless his little soul, and pray for the strength to carry on.
"The will of God will never take Tripp where the Grace of God will not protect him." Know that Tripp and his family are in our prayers.

Know that I am thinking of all of you and will be praying that you can be at peace knowing your little angel is in heaven. May the love and peace of God be with you in your time of sorrow.
My deepest sympathy on the loss of your little nugget. Tripp was the most precious child. His smile, laugh n joy was based on the eternal love you both had for him. He may not be here physically but he will always be in your heart. Tripp is your little angel in Heaven running around sharing the love u showed him and know one day you will wrap your arms around him again. I love you so very much
Hi Leslie & Larry,
Im Brittany Doyle's husband, Chris. I've been in utter disaray since I heard about your little boy. Even though I never got to meet him, I felt like, in some way, I knew him. Brittany would always talk about how cute he was and how happy he always looked. That's got to be a true testimate to what great parents you and Larry are. The only comfort I could take out of this whole tragedy is, for all of Tripp's short life, he only knew happiness. You gave your son the greatest gift anyone could ever recieve. As a parent of two boys myself I would wish only a life of full happiness for the both of them. Nothing I could ever say would stop your pain but know, you have thousands who hurt for you and with you. God blessed you with another baby boy who I know has a life of happiness ahead just like his brother had. You, Larry, Tripp, Connor and the rest of your family will be in our thoughts and prayers always.
My heart aches for your loss!!! he will forever in our hearts and you in our prayers!!! xoxo
So very sorry for the loss of your beautiful little boy. Our heart aches for you and our prayers are with you and your family at this very sad time.

Leslie, Larry, and Connor,
By now you may know that you have a support system that spans generations, states, and lifestyles. This whole network of people were touched by Tripp in some way or another. This outpouring of support is nothing more than a glimpse of how much love there is for your family and for him. Should you need anything- a sugar packet, a hug, a grocery run- we are here and happy to help.
We are moved by Tripps life here on earth, saddened by his passing, and amazed by the love he has spread,
May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
I wish I had some words of comfort that could ease your pain. May God hold all of you tightly and carry you through this.
Praying that you and your family can keep your faith during this very difficult time. Let me know if I can help in any way.....taking care of your animals, anything!!!
Tripp was a special little angel, sent down from Heaven for a short period of time, to share with those he came in contact with that Love for Living each and everyday and his beautiful, heavenly smile. Now its His time to go back home, leaving wonderful memories behind, until he meets with you again in his Heavenly Father's House. M. Rene'e Bailey and Family are praying for you Leslie and Larry and you entire family, Strength, Comfort and Peace.
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."
It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.
God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.
I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.
If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.
So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

If an artist painted a cherub, he would have this face.Tripp gave and received love each and everyday of his life!
Leslie and Larry,
I can't seem to find the words to express my sorrow and sympathy. It is simply not fair that your baby boy was taken from you. No one will ever know God's reasons for what he does, all we can do is have faith that one day it will all make sense to us when we meet him in heaven. I never got the chance to meet your ham but I will say that I have seen many pictures of that smiling face that has in turn put a smile on my face as I'm sure it did everyone else around him. I will continue to pray that God gives you the strength and serenity to get through this tragedy.
All my love and prayers, Keller
