Trey Hannah
Memorial website in the memory of your loved one
His legacy
in my dreams  


For those of you who didn't get to see this article.....  




Trey Hannah was born on July 24, 1990, to Rose and Cliff Hannah.  He was called home in the early morning hours of February 29, 2004.  He was 13.  Trey was one of the seven children killed in a tragic car accident in Millington. 


Trey was the only son and the youngest of three children.  His sisters, Lisa and Leslie, remember him as being loving, aggravating, silly and the best brother they could’ve ever had.  After Lisa married and moved out, Leslie and Trey would argue over any little thing.  Each morning, while preparing for school, the arguments would begin, usually over the use of hair-care products.  You see, Trey was a “ladies man,” and in order to look the part, had to use these products.  Since Leslie owned most of the products he needed, he would just “borrow” them - without her knowledge, of course.  We still laugh today over the lingering cloud of hairspray he’d leave in the bathroom. 


After school, a new set of arguments would occur; like chores.  Leslie and Trey both had assigned chores to be completed before playtime or phone time.  Trey would run in from school, throw his things down, and run out before Leslie had the chance to stop him.  He was quick enough to get out of chores, but charming enough to stay out of trouble.


One of the great things about Trey was his easy smile and outgoing personality.  His presence just lit up a room, no matter who was in it.  It didn’t matter what crowd he was with, he would always make a new friend.  Whether you were popular or the new kid on the block, Trey would make your acquaintance and become your friend.


One of the things we treasure the most is that Trey was an active member of Crosspointe Baptist Church. Trey loved God.  Just six months earlier, he had publicly recommitted his life to Christ.  He was looking forward to enrolling in the new discipleship program under the direction of his youth minister.   Trey had a very strong faith and love for Jesus.


We miss Trey so very much, and sometimes we wonder why his life had to be so short.  We struggle through the days that overwhelm us with grief, and rejoice in the days that fill us with sweet memories. But one thing is for sure: Trey is sitting at the feet of Jesus, helping to prepare a place for us all.

Trey loved his horses...  
Trey's passion for his horses grew more and more everyday.  He loved to ride with his friends and have a good time.  The bond between Trey and his 2 favorite horses, Cissy and Hey Girl was amazing.  When Trey left us, Jim Taber, a very good friend, set up an award for the organization we ride for.  SASCA (Southern Amatuer Saddle Club Association).  We give an award in honor of Trey Hannah to the overall high point winner (total combined points) to a child who rides Pony Flags, Pony Speed and Pony Barrels.  That is what Trey rode for many years.  This is a way we can keep his memory and legacy alive.  Thank you Jim for donating this award in honor of Trey.  I know he is smiling down upon you. 
you were the one  
You were the one to run to, for a shoulder to cry on...
You were the one everyone relied on...
Any dreams or fears were safe with you...
I'll admit I ran to you too...
We used to talk for hours about our futures...
Now I know none of it will ever happen...
I know if you were here you would tell me "Be strong"...
"Don't cry" "I'll be here waiting for you..."
I just want you to know you will never be far...
My mind will always be full of memories of you...
I know there's a time we all must go...
But how can merely being 13 be the time to do so...

love u trey..*LaLa*
I will miss you  
You were so full of life,
Always smiling and carefree.
Life loved you being a part of it,
And i loved you being a part of me.

You could make anyone laugh,
If they were having a bad day.
No matter how sad i was,
You could take the hurt away.

Nothing could ever stop you,
Or even make you fall.
You were ready to take on the world,
Ready to do it all.

But God decided he needed you,
So from this world you left.
But you took a piece of all of us,
Our hearts are what you kept.

Your seat is now empty,
And it's hard not to see your face.
But please always know this,
No one will ever take you place.

You left without a warning,
Not even saying good-bye.
And i can't seem to stop,
Asking the question why.

Nothing will ever be the same,
The halls are empty without you laughter.
But i know you're up in heaven,
Watching over us and looking after.

I didn't see this comming,
It hit me by suprise.
And when you left this world,
A small part of us died.

I remember you swinging from the hayloft ropes,
When you were just a little boy.
and the last time i ever saw you,
You were riding your pride and joy (HEYGIRL)

Your smile could brighten anyones day,
No matter what they were going through.
And i know every day for the rest of my lifeTrey,
I will be missing you


When God calls little children to dwell with Him above,
We mortals sometimes question the wisdom of His Love.
For no heartache compares with the death of one small child
Who does so much to make our world seem wonderful and mild.
Perhaps God tires of calling the aged to His fold,
So He picks a rosebud before it can grow old.
God knows how much we need them, and so He takes but few
To make the land of Heaven more beautiful to view.
Believing this is difficult still somehow we must try,
The saddest work mankind knows will always be "goodbye."
So when a little child departs, we who are left behind
must realize God loves children, Angels are hard to find.

Trey's life  
Trey was born July 24, 1990 at 5:10 p.m. at Methodist North Hospital in Memphis, TN to Rose and Cliff Hannah.  Trey was a good child.  Typical boy growing up.  Always dirty, play in the dirt, rough housing around, terrorizing his sisters.  As Trey got older, he noticed a lot of girls starting to like him.  So, now was the time for him to start looking good.  Every morning before school, he would go into the girls bathroom, take their hair gel, hairspray and other hair stuff to make his hair look just right.  He would then put on his favorite cologne and he was off to school.  Not a day went by that our phone didn't ring at least 50 times a night for Trey.  And guess what.  It was always a girl.  Pretty soon, Trey got to saying he was just a pimp daddy.  Before I knew it, he has me going to the flower shop to get flowers for one special girl.  Kayla was her name.  He was the daughter of our Pastor at church.  Then, before I knew it, he was liking someone else. So on and so forth.  Trey was a good boy though.  He went to church on Wednesday nights, Sunday mornings and Sunday night.  He loved his church and Jesus.  Just 6 months before Jesus called him home, Trey stood before about 500+ people at Crosspointe Baptist Church and rededicated his life back to Jesus.  He was so proud.  I couldn't have asked for anything more.  I actually saw Trey witness to several children about Jesus and what He did for us.  Then, before we knew it, we were getting a knock on our door letting us know that Trey had been in an auto accident with 6 other children.  All had died instantly.  This day was February 29, 2004.  These 7 children are  now known as the 7 Leap Year angels.  And Angels they are. 

The weird thing to all of this is, Trey was born in leap year and died in leap year.  What does this mean?  I haven't a clue, but I am sure, when I get to Heaven and I see my beloved son again, I will know.

Trey's goal in life I believe was to show everyone that life is all good.  No matter who you were or what you did, Trey was your friend.  Wether you were  heavy, skinny, tall, short, wore glasses or not, were popular or not, Trey was always the same.  I don't think a day went by that Trey didn't meet a stranger.  He was always a friend to all.  That is what made him so special.  If he got mad at you one day, the next he had forgotten all about it.

For those of you who really knew him, please let's keep this going. 

Trey I love you and I miss you.  You are the ache in my heart and the tear that runs down my cheek.  But, I know you are with me always.  There are times when I am running Laz in barrels I can hear your voice tell me "Go momma, he aint running". I will always remember you being my cheering section at all those shows.  I miss seeing your big beautiful smile.  You know the one that you always used to charm your way in or out of everything?!  But, it is still fresh in my memory. 

You are my Gaurdian Angel.

I love you,
