Triana, their sweet and beautiful mommy, was killed on August 4th in a terrible atv crash.
She had asked her mom, Lisa, to babysit for the weekend so she could go on a camping trip with a handsome and kind young man and several of his friends. She told her Lisa and her aunt, bashfully, that Brent had said,"I love you, and you don't even have to say it back, but I do." Triana was afraid, but she wanted to give Brent a chance to prove to her his love and the possibility of a future together.
They had so much fun on their camping trip! Friends from the trip told us she looked so happy. She texted her mom, "I'm so confused, mom, I thought I was going to move to Colorado and start a new life with my best friend and our kids, but I think I love him, too, Mom.
And then the camping Friends decided to go on a group ride on their ATVs and utvs. So much fun! All lined up, staying close together to watch out for each other, they rode for hours, until the moon shone above them, and they began to get tired. A friend said, "We need to go back," but Triana was having so much fun with Brent that she wanted to keep riding Into the Night. Lights from the UTV's guided the way for the ATV with weaker lights, each car in a single file line, all the friends watching to make sure the car in back of them was still in line.
Suddenly, the ATV lights disappeared! Friends signaled each other to turn around, but they couldn't see the ATV.
Finally, someone yelled, "I see them!" The car had fallen off an embankment and smashed into a tree. Friends tried so hard to save them, doing CPR for an hour, until help arrived.
Too late. Triana and Brent were dead.
Triana's babies, Jaxon (8), Paislee (6) and Boston (4) don't understand where heaven is, or how mommy got there. They will need grief counseling and lots of support. Food, clothing, dental and medical, school supplies, registration for clubs and sports, and the ability to go to college are all the things that Triana wanted to provide for her children.
If you can help, even just a little, please donate to this fund for Trianas kids.
