Trinity Smith's Memorial Fund

My beloved brother, Trinity James Smith (Trent), 38, was reported missing in December 2014, when his remains were found on January 19, 2015.  Trinity was brutally murdered right before Thanksgiving of 2014.  Trinity had just returned back to Durham in mid October 2014, to start a new life with his family and loved ones after spending several years in Denver Colorado.  We were elated about Trinity’s arrival and were so happy to have our brother, son, cousin, nephew, friend and grandson back home with us, where we could give him the love and support he so desperately missed and needed.  Trinity’s death was tragic and devastating and most importantly, it was completely senseless.  Trinity was such a fun, loving and affectionate person.  He was a great friend and he always accepted and loved people for who they were and where they were in life, no matter what.  He understood what it meant to struggle in life, so he had a passion to reach out to others and help them as much as he possibly could.  Before Trinity passed, he had expressed that he felt he wasn’t as cared for by many others and this set a small burden on his heart.  If he only knew the out cry and support of people that have been affected very much by the loss of Trinity, he would be stunned. 

We are raising this money, so we can assemble his Memorial service and we can also help out with some things that Trinity had going on before he sadly passed away.  So, we appreciate every bit that we receive.  Even if it is only $5.  Every dollar counts.  So we thank you so much for any contribution and for all your prayers, thoughts and kid words.  That means so much to us at this difficult time. 

With the Sincerest Thanks,

The Smith Family
