Trent Connelly Memorial

It's with a heavy heart that we've had to say goodbye to Trent.

"It's the kind of heartache you feel in your bones."

My name is Mellissa West and I am the sister of Wendy Hardin. This memorial is in remembrance of my nephew. Trent was in a horrific car accident on Wed, Jan 10th, 2018 in which his heart was severely injured. It's seems like a bad dream that I'm having to type the words for a memorial fund for my 21 year old nephew. But I truly find peace in knowing he's Home with Jesus.

The memorial will help with funeral expenses during this awful time. Help out if you would like but please do not feel obligated to donate. Please do pray. Pray for a peace that only comes from our Lord and Savior. All remaining funds will be donated to The Blood Connection who was there to help Trent every step of the way.

Thank you all so much for the unending support, love and prayers you've shown during this tragedy.

"Grief is really just love. It's all the love you want to give but cannot. All of that unspent love gathers up in the corners of your eyes, the lump in your throat, and in that hollow part of your chest. Grief is just love with no place to go."

We will never forget you Trent. Your wings were ready but our hearts were not.
