Dear Jolea, Marty, Zachary, & Keaton- I know its been a couple months now, but I also know that the pain doesn't just disappear with time. I hope you all know how much I care about your family, and think about you guys all the time. I know Jolea & I see each other at work, but it's not something you can or maybe even want to talk about at the workplace. Just know my prayers and thoughts are still with you and much love. Trevor was an awesome kid, and I know his life made a huge difference in those around him. I will always cherish his memory!!!

To the goat loving, country boy who stole my heart, I love you. Trevor, you were my first love and I will never forget you. I miss you like crazy and we all do down here but we all know you're in a good place right now. Don't worry either, I got Zach and Keaton under my wings just like you were. I got a tattoo for you even though I would always tell you I wasn't going to get one... I know you are laughing about that for sure. I can't wait for the day we meet again and I get one of those great trevor hugs that took my breath away overtime. I love you bud, rest easy.

We were shocked and saddened to hear about Trevor's passing. Our hearts are broken for your family. We pray for peace and comfort for you in your time of sorrow.
What a great kid! We will cherish the memories of camping back in the good old days with our pop up campers. Will always remember how he never wanted to wear shoes and was always running around barefoot. A big loss to the world as he had so much potential and ambition. May he rest in peace and our thoughts are with you Marty, Jolea, Zach, and Keaton..

My words are not adequate to express the sorrow I feel for your loss. Your son, Trevor was an inspiration to everyone around him. I am so blessed and lucky to have known his beauty, big heart, his jovialness and laughter and his inviting personality. I will keep his spirit alive with the many sacred memories I hold close to my heart. It is truly the mark of wonderful parents. I am very stunned to hear the sad news about Trevor and still can't believe that it really happened. Every bit of my heart goes out to you during this most difficult time. One of the wonderful memories I have about Trevor is are chats at soccer practice. Whenever Trevor would see me at practice at Hidden valley he would make a point to come up and say hi to me. He loved to talk about the rivalry between Valley and Dowling Soccer. We would laugh about the feuds. Wishing you peace to bring comfort, courage to face the days ahead and loving memories to forever hold in your hearts. My love and sympathy to you, Jolea, Marty, Zachary and Keaton. My love and sincerest condolences, Aziz Haffar Valley Soccer Coach
