Trenton Paul Carty - Class Of 2014

   Trenton Paul Carty, age 8, of Jenkins, Kentucky, passed away on Wednesday May 7, 2014 at the Whitesburg Appalachian Regional Hospital, Whitesburg, Kentucky, due to injuries sustained from a bicycle accident.  He was born on September 25, 2005 at Pikeville, Kentucky and was a lifelong resident of Letcher County, Kentucky.  Trent was an energetic child with a heart as big as the world.  He was very loving and protective of his family, especially his sister, Arabella.  Trent greatly enjoyed spending time with his family, especially his brothers and sister, spending time with members of the community, especially his friend Jacob, swimming, hiking, playing video games, playing basketball, going to church, ATVing, drawing, which he possessed a talent far beyond his age, and was a noted Batman fan.  Trent was very involved with computers and enjoyed making movies on his laptop and taking pictures on his Ipad.  Trent was well known for being very compassionate and willing to help other regardless of the task.  Trent had an outgoing and mature personality and had a number of adult friends.  He acquired several nicknames from friends and family but was proud and most noted for “stripe” from the film Gremlins, which was given by his granddad, who he was very close with.  Trent had a smile that could light up a room and capture your heart.  He had a passion for magic and possessed several magic kits and was very proud of the card tricks that he had recently learned and was able to perform very well.  Trent was often described as a very generous little fellow that would give anything of his to anybody.  He was a third grade student at the Burdine Elementary School, where he held the distinction of remaining on honor roll, since his enrollment, and attended the Burdine Freewill Baptist Church, where he carried his “holly” bible when in attendance. 

   Trent was preceded in death by maternal grandfather, Paul Sanders; his paternal grandfather, Verlin Keith Carty, Sr; his maternal great-grandfather, John DePriest; and his paternal great-grandfathers, Hubert Carty and Jack Redman.

Trent, you will never know how much joy you brought to my life. How many life lessons you taught me while I thought I was the one teaching you!  The legacy you have left behind in your 8 years of life is much bigger than any I could have ever imagined. You were and are still, so special to so many people....I'm so thankful and so PROUD to be your mother. God gave me one of the greatest four gifts of my life the day he gave me you!  I love you and I'm thankful for the 8 years of laughter, love and everything in between that goes along with being a family. You had one of the kindest hearts and bravest souls I've ever seen. YOU were a large part of my strength.  To say I miss you is are forever in my heart, in my mind and always always part of my soul. So, as long as I live, so will you and your memory. My sweet sweet baby.
