We are very sorry for your loss, please accept our condolences.
My daughter worked with Tristan and we are customers and saw Tristan frequently. Tristan was always friendly, polite and courteous and demonstrated a very high caliber of professionalism. He helped my daughter on many occasions with shift coverage including the last time we saw Tristan when he agreed to come in early to help us get to an event in time. I had complimented his new spring hair cut and we both thanked him as we said goodby and left the store that day. Tristan will be missed. Wishing you all peace and comfort while moving forward in honoring Tristan’s life.

I’m so sorry to hear of your passing, Tristan. And I’m so sorry to your family for their loss.

I hadn’t seen or spoken to him in a couple years, after I left Hamilton-Wenham but Tristan was never someone you could forget. With kindness and warmth, even on days no one wanted to be at school, Tristan managed to make his friends laugh and/or smile.

I’ll miss you Tristan and I’m so sorry I didn’t say goodbye.

To his family, I send you my sincerest condolences and wish you nothing but peace and comfort during this time and after.

I am so sorry to hear the loss of Tristan Rice. At time like these we realize how short and how precious life can be. But notice what the Bible helps us in such difficult time. Acts 24:15 "that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” What a wonderful hope. May this is comfort you and your family at this time.
