    My condolence to Tray’s family: Losing a loved one is never easy. But please keep in mind the wonderful thoughts found in Isaiah 25:8 and Revelations 21:4, that one day soon the earth will be a place free from pain, mourning, and even death: I hope that you find comfort and encouragement in knowing that Almighty God cares for you

    Tom….You, Brooks, Debbie and Tyler, my heart aches to know that Tray will no longer be in your midst to touch your heart as he did for years he was on this earth. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. What a wonderful, kind, gentle and courageous individual Tray was and an unbelievable inspiration to all who knew him. He will be so greatly missed but never ever, forgotten. Love to you all, Karin
