Stacye, Thank you for: sharing your husband with me and the Beaumont Police Department for 24 years, for trusting me with his medical journey, for giving me an opportunity to witness, testify, and pray with the two of you. Never in a million years would I have thought that this would be the end result. Although my heart is aching in pain for you, the boys, his grandson, and the entire family; we know that this is not a goodbye, but a see you later! His strength shall become your strength! Your faith became his faith, and your love became the love of his life. Stacye, you have always been such a giving and loving person. Therefore, our God shall see you through this storm. God will give you his comfort when you’re down. Give you his joy when you can’t seem to pull out your smile. When you begin to miss Trey, think on the memories you’ve made, the times he made you smile, the times he made you upset but yet all you could do was laugh. Trey is no longer here, but he has you, your sons, your grandson, more of his family, and friends for his legacy to continue . I Love you!
