I remember when you was a little kid and was with you aunt shonda everywhere she went, you was a spoiled little kid. you always came to my house to play with the dogs and to mess with leona, you always got her all rowlled up!  you always had a smile on your face. I have pitures of you, christina and amanda michelle running the chickens around the house in diapers at your granny sarys house. she was always yelling at yall to leave them chickens alone. I love and wii always remember you for the rest of my life, love aunt april. Tell my momma and my brother I love them.

It just seems like yesterday that we were playing barbies in our underwear. I remember when we used to let your papaws chickens out and you would lie until the end and swear we didnt do it, knowing that we did. we had so much fun out there. I remember when you used to hate going to my granny Aprils house because you said she was mean and looked like a witch. you were always silly. You used to be a tom boy and always wanted to be outside playing in the dirt at your papaws and when we got into your moms car she would yell at us the whole way home and she knew who lead us to do it! TRISTA NICOLE! My last memory with you is when you called me upset because shonda was going through some hard times and you wanted me to go and set with her and we went to her house and we watched movies and my mom got us some pizza and we talked and laughed about things we used to do as kids. This was just december 30th. Ill never forget my last day with you. Shine down on your mom and the rest of your family. We love you and we will cherish these memories for the rest of our lives! Tell granny sary that we love her and when leona comes to you please take good care of her because God knows its only a matter of time!

To the Family of Trista,

May God Bless You and Hold You In His Arms.

Angie Bingham So sorry for your loss January 10, 2011

BJ and all of Trista's family and friends,

So many of us have heavy hearts for you all right now and I pray that in some way that will take away some of your unbearable pain.  May God bless you all and heal your hearts. I pray that you have comfort knowing that you will not be separated from her in spirit.  For those who believe in Christ there are no good byes.  She is with her Papaw and with Jesus in a far better place than we can imagine.  And you will be with her again with the Lord for all eternity and never separated again. The loss of a child is so hard for alot of us to even begin to imagine... but I pray for the Lord to comfort you all and cradle you and carry you through this time... and that you will take some comfort and peace in knowing that as believers you will be reunited again and NEVER AGAIN TO PART.

Mara Estero, Statesville, NC My Condolences for the Family: January 10, 2011



Have you lost a loved one in death? The pain, the grief, and the feelings of helplessness can seem unbearable. At such times, we need to go to God’s Word for comfort. (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4) The Bible helps us to understand how Jehovah and Jesus feel about death. Jesus, who perfectly reflected his Father, knew the pain of losing someone in death. (John 14:9) When he was in Jerusalem, Jesus used to visit Lazarus and his sisters, Mary and Martha, who lived in the nearby town of Bethany. They became close friends. The Bible says: “Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus.” (John 11:5) Though, Lazarus died.  How did Jesus feel about losing his friend? The account tells us that Jesus joined Lazarus’ relatives and friends as they grieved over this loss. Seeing them, Jesus was deeply moved. He “groaned in the spirit and became troubled.” Then, the account says, “Jesus gave way to tears.” (John 11:3335) Did Jesus’ grief mean that he had no hope? Not at all. In fact, Jesus knew that something wonderful was about to happen. (John 11:3, 4) Still, he felt the pain and sorrow that death brings.  In a way, Jesus’ grief is encouraging to us. It teaches us that Jesus and his Father, Jehovah, hate death. But Jehovah God is able to fight and overcome that enemy! Let us see what God enabled Jesus to do.

May you rest in peace Trista!!!

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 where I dwell with God above where there's no more tears or sadness there 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 so badly as part of My big plan there's so much that we have to do to help our mortal man Then God gave me a list of things He wished for me to do and foremost on that list of mine is to watch and care for you And I will be beside you every day and week and year and when you're sad I'm standing there to wipe away the tear And when you lie in bed at night the days 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're 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 of 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're I am closer to you now than I ever was before And to my very many friends trust God knows what is best I'm still not far away from you I'm just beyond the crest There are rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb but together we can do it 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 so the World will give to you If you can help somebody who is in sorrow or in pain then you can say to God at night my day was not in vain And now I am contented that my life it was worthwhile knowing as I passed along the way I made somebody smile So if you meet somebody who is down and feeling low just lend a hand to pick him up as on your way you go When you are 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 you feel the gentle breeze or the wind upon your face that's me giving you a great big hug or just a soft embrace And when it's time for you to go from that body to be free from that body to be free remember you're not going you are coming here to me And I will always love you from that land way up above Will be in touch again soon!

P.S. God sends His Love
