I met Trevor in 1992 through his cousin Henry and that is where our bond started. It was one of the greatest introduction into my family’s life. Trevor was not only my close friend but he was the son my mother gained and the brother that myself and sisters yearned to have. He was apart of my kids life and he was a role model to my sons. Trevor was a kind and gentle soul, and his love for his family and friends run deep and beyond. He was a man of integrity and values . He believed in giving everyone a 1st ,2nd and 3rd chance, even when they had done wrong.
Throughout Trevor’s journey in our lives he has touched each and everyone of us in a special way; therefore his memories will forever live on in each and everyone of us.
Sleep in peace Trevor , I will forever miss you my brother and friend.

Poem dedicated to Trevor

If we can bring you back again,
For one more hour or day,
We’d express all our unspoken love,
We’d have countless things to say.

If we could bring you back again,
We’d say we love you,
And that your presence in our lives meant more than we ever knew.

If we could bring you back again,
To tell you what we should
You’d know how much we miss you now and if we could we would.

The day God took you home

A million times
I've needed you
A million times I've cried,
If love alone
Could have saved you
You never would have died.
In life I loved you dearly;
In death, I love you still.
In my heart, you hold a space,
Where no one can ever fill.
It broke my heart to lose you,
But you didn't go alone
Part of me went with you,
The day God took you home.

SIP my love until we meet again.

When you lived your life for others and you loved without condition.
When you made so many laugh and your smile won't forgotten.
When you left behind empty places
That no one else can fill
When your friendships you shared long to be renewed
When you built your life on and fulfilled it everyday.
The footprints that you left behind will never forgotten.
Sleep in perfect peace my cuz,Trevor.

A million times I've cried,

In life I loved you dearly;
In death, I love you still.
In my heart, you hold a space,
