Tristan G Mericle ROCK HILL, SCFunerals & Memorials
It is with great sorrow, devastation and hurt to announce our beloved Tristan Gabriel Mericle is no longer with us. On Tuesday, December 31, 2013, just 9 days after his 7th birthday, Tristan was in a tragic accident involving a collision between his dirt bike & a tractor trailer truck at his home in Great Falls, SC.
To witness & be apart of what my family are going through right now is an unbearable pain I would have never thought possible. We are all very numb, in a great deal of disbelief, heartbroken & working together to provide strength for Tristan's father, Shawn, his mother, Amy, step-mother, Eryn & each other.
Tristan had the biggest heart of any 7 year old I knew. His love was unconditional for everyone he met & he was never afraid to show it through hugs & sweet kisses. He also regularly gave his family back massages for the minimal payment of $1.00. Being a regular entrepreneur, on his last day, he spent the morning making rubber band bracelets that he stated his family were to be given for free, but he would be asking $5.00 of his customers for his masterpieces. Our family agrees Tristan had a smile that could sell snow to an eskimo. He was a comedic, silly thing as well as a prankster who filled the room & our hearts with laughter & cheer. He could simply brighten a room with his presence... You rarely saw him without a smile on his face. Tristan was becoming quite the country boy who loved being outside, fishing, hunting, camo and Gamecocks football. He knew every Jason Aldean song known to man & we will always wish we’d gotten to take him to his first concert.
We are all so very thankful for the time we had to spend with him, play with him, hug him, kiss him & the many many many laughs & memories he brought to our family. God just couldn't wait for this special angel. We know that this is not the end as we will one day meet again, but this does not take away the suffering & sadness of our loss at this time. Our love for Tristan knows no limits & we will forever cherish & miss him.
During this unexpected, difficult time we are asking for any contributions, big or small, to help with Tristan's final expenses & aiding in funeral arrangements. If you would like to make a donation, we will greatly appreciate the support in this time of need. Thank you all for your prayers, thoughts, condolences & the continued show of love.
Spread your wings & fly baby… Never Forgotten & Always in our Hearts♥ We love you, Tristan Gabriel Mericle. Rest In Peace. 12/22/06-12/31/13
