Gentry, Tevin J.'s Guestbook

I remember when Tricia was pregnant with Tevin, and then when he was born, the tiniest little tike brought into the office to introduce to us all. So much endless promise in that little face. I have no words to express my sorrow in Tevin's passing. Much love to the entire family.


Tricia and family, I was so sorry to hear the news about Tevin. Children are not supposed to die before the parents. As we lost a son as well, I have some understanding of what you are experiencing. I know it is incredibly difficult now, but it does get easier. Not easy, but easier. Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers for you all.
