DIED
2010
Tristen A. Dasch, age 15, breathed his first breath in heaven Saturday, Aug. 14, 2010. He was hospitalized in Memphis, Tenn. Memorial service: 5 p.m. Wednesday at St. John Lutheran Church, 1218 E. Debbie Lane, Mansfield. Visitation: will follow in the gym, where refreshments and sandwiches from Spring Creek Barbeque will be served. Memorials: In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. John Lutheran Church Memorial Prayer Garden. Tristen was born to Sheila and Bill Dasch on July 1, 1995, in Houston. He was known for his wit, musical and athletic ability, but, most of all, for his loving and kind spirit. He accompanied his dad, a pastor, to hospitals and prayed for people. He wanted to be a pastor and a doctor. For seven-plus years, he fought leukemia and survived against all odds. Finally, complications from treatment became too much for his body to bear. Doctors and nurses at Cook Children's Medical Center in Fort Worth and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, Tenn., have commented on how strong his spirit was. Survivors: His brothers, Taylor and Scott and wife, Sandy; his parents, Sheila and Bill; grandparents Catherine Dasch, Charlotte Johnson and Dennis Morris; and great-grandmother Imogene Jacobs. He had a host of close friends, family and relatives.

Bill & Sheila, my thoughts & prayers are with your family. I know what a sweet little boy Tristen was at 2 years of age, so I know he must have been a real sweetheart as a young man. I will always remember him & I rejoice with you that he is with Jesus now & we'll see him again one day when we all get to Heaven. I know you miss him. May God comfort you all day, everyday.

To the Dasch Family:
We were so sorry to hear of the earthly loss of your son, Tristen. While we did not know him personally, we were recently acquainted with his courageous battle with leukemia via a close friend, who is a member of your congregation. We instantly became prayer warriors, as well as our little one who has been battling cancer was placed on your SJLC Prayer Train. May it help you to know that Tristen and your Christian faith have touched so many other lives. We will continue to pray your strength in the Lord during this very difficult time. Just remember that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord and this is the transition we all must make in order to reach the ultimate home that has been prepared for us. So take comfort in knowing you will see Tristen again!
Yours in Christ, Sarah Lewis and Family

To the Dasch family. I regret that I simply have no words to offer you that will assuage the pain you feel in your hearts. It is indeed a terrible loss. One that every Mother, Father, Brother, or Sister dread carrying. So instead I will offer my words to Our Father. That he may send the Holy Spirit unto you and lighten the burden of mortal loss and bring you peace in your time of need. Worry not for Tristen, his race is won, and now he stands victorious in the presence of God. May God bless you and your family.
August 19, 2010
The thoughts and prayers of my family remain with the Dasch family. Among the prayers for comfort and peace are prayers of praise for the strong and unshakable faith the Dasch family is blessed with. It is that faith that will see them through.

Pastor Dasch and family-
Our prayers are with your family. Tristen's Celebration Of Life service was amazing. We are so blessed to be members of St.John and have such a wonderful church family. Tristen was truly blessed to have such a wonderful family as well. I have never seen that many people in one place for that type of service, what an impact Tristen made on many, many people. Please let us know if there is anything we can do for your family. We love you guys so much.

My prayers are for comfort to Tristen's family as I know that Tristen lives in God's Grace now where there is no more pain or illness. I know first hand how it is to lose a son even if it is to God we still miss them so much but Tristen if you get a chance to see my son honey his name is Kevin Latham he was also born in July on the 24th he died at age 30 from Burkett's Lymphoma Cancer on Sept. 7,2009 after a long battle at M.D. Anderson Hospital in Houston Texas tell him his Mom misses him dearly yet I know he is in good hands now. And Tristen I bet you guy's could really be good buddies up in heaven I can see ya'll sitting on a bank fishing and telling stories already.

Tristen, I can't wait to meet you in heaven. Although we never had the chance to meet, your courage and faith has challenged and uplifted my family as we have followed your story and kept you in prayer. You will be SO missed here on earth, but I am so jealous of the face-to-face company you're currently keeping with our Father. To the Dasch family - we love you, our hearts are with you, and we are keeping you in our prayers!

Bill, Sheila and Taylor --

Our thoughts and prayers are with you continuously! Tristen's life (as well as your own) have been an inspiration to all who have had the pleasure to know each one of you! Tristen has been gifted with the ULTIMATE gift and although it saddens those that knew him that he will not be close we shall draw comfort in the memories and the fact that we will all be together again in that WONDEROUS place of places. God Bless you and my heart is with you. LOVE Chantel, Cory and Cody Smith

Our words can never truly provide the comfort at the loss of a loved one. The one thing we as Christians have is the HOPE in the reserection. One of my favorite Scriptures is John 10:27-30 "My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father's hand. I and the Father are one." May God continue to guide and bless you at this time.

Though I did not know Tristen as well as I should have or could have, visiting him at St. Jude's has been one of the most moving experiences of my life and I don't think I will every forget his amazing spirit or the love of those around him. Thank you for touching my life. I hope I touched yours.

Tristen was a strong indiviual. We are related and i never got to meet him but feel as if i got to know him through stories on facebook and through his fight for life. I pray all the Dasch family in this time! I pray God will put his loving arms around all of you. Something also to remember is that Tristen is in heaven and if we ever want to see him again we need to make sure we have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. So if you are not a Christian please pray to God and allow him to come into your heart and take over your life so that one day we can walk the streets of gold with Tristen. Thank you and God Bless. Love you all so much..
