A tragedy occurred in a small modest town with simple minds but big hearts in Missouri. A car accident took the life of a 16 yr. old boy, Tristen Russ on Saturday, August 25th. The family and community he was apart of lost a kind, nature loving, outgoing individual who loved making people smile through his jokes and the kindness he spread to his family, loved ones, and strangers he met in passing. He touched the lives of many and the community is devastated to have lost someone who was so special. He left behind a mother and father, a baby sister, friends, and a girlfriend who all cared for him dearly. A beautitul individual was lost. The heartbreak that has been caused to all those Tristen touched is unimaginable. Tristen's family would be grateful for all the help they can get in giving this special boy a funeral through donations. Any help is appreciated as his family, friends, and community grieve this monumental loss. As a mother myself, I cannot imagine anything more devastating to go through. Prayers, thoughts, and donations all are appreciated in this time of need in covering the unfortunate expenses of the funeral. Even as little as five dollars can help.
