Our dear friend Trent Chaney has been dealt a tragic blow. Trent's oldest son, 27 years old, passed away unexpectedly. Trent is devastated and his future is forever altered by this event leaving a hole in his heart and void never to be filled.

This is something no parent should ever have to endure, the tragic loss of a child.  Those left behind have to deal with questions about what they could have done differently and why, why, why oh God.

Trent's son had two young children, Faith age 6 and Brandon age 4. Not only is Trent dealing with the tragic loss, but he's also left with the hardship of looking after his grandchildren without a father.

I can't begin to fathom the agony such an event and the resulting hardship.

I would encourage all who know Trent to donate to help fund funeral and childcare expenses. Even if you don't know Trent please consider a donation to help him in this extremely difficult time.

I just wanted to pass along an update regarding Trent's situation. The first Thanksgiving after experiencing the loss of a loved one can be very tough, especially if the loss is a child. Trent has stepped up to take on the responsibility of raising his two grandchildren, Faith and Brandon, and he’s doing a great job from what I’ve seen and heard.

There is still a lot of adjusting ahead, emotional and financial. While there was sadness this Thanksgiving for the Chaney family, there were also some things they were very grateful for. The generosity of friends, family, neighbors and teachers providing a helping hand in so many different ways.

Trent is so thankful for all those who have helped him financially through this go-fund-me page.

I spoke with Trent and he said the expenses are still coming in and unfortunately life insurance did not cover funeral expenses as expected. Also new unexpected legal expenses have been incurred.
If you would still like to contribute during this season of giving the need continues for Trent.

If you have contributed already, again thank you so much for your generosity.

Please share freely on Facebook to help let others know!

Thanks,
Kris

The fund raiser Saturday June 2nd was very helpful and a big thanks to all those who attended, contributed and planned this event.

However contributions are still needed as the funeral expenses alone were over $10,000. If you haven't yet contributed please consider helping.
