Tristan Gail Gray 27
by Michael Gray
(Oklahoma City, Ok)
4 months ago I opened a hotel door and walked into a whole unwanted and unexpected nightmare of a life of shattered dreams and goals; I walked in that door and found the love of my life, my graceful gift from GOD, my love, and my only Tristan Gray Tristan Gail Aldridge Trisy Gail had been called on to her permanent home to serve in a different fashion. In the matter of a split second I went from the happiest man in the world who couldn't wait to see his wife after a long night on the rigs to being broken, shattered, on the floor, trying to call 911, and just trying to breath between the sobs, sniffles, and words.
As I crawled to the door and waved down the paramedics, the nightmare just got worse, but then as I heard the DOS call go out over the walkie my heart stopped and again I just fell to the floor it taking two firefighters to walk me out to the stairs outside the room, just to sit there and beg each officer, firefighter, detective, forensics member, and the Judge to please respect my wife and treat her with dignity. During all of this going on I didn't have a chance to think of Shari McCoy Rachel Reese Tina McCoy Keeli Aldridge Keith Aldridge Debi Jerrell Willey Stacy Gray Landon Brian Gray Kami Gray Robert Willey Barbara & Delbert Toni and her boys, as well as so much more family and friends would be impacted, this came once I began my long lonely trip from midland tx to shawnee ok without my copilot. Within a matter of seconds the burden i felt because of all the people that would be hurt stopped me in the middle of I20 trying to get on the shoulder......
To everyone that has been impacted by this decision of GODs that we do not understand all I can say is you are in my prayers, Tristan loved so many people that often she would not get around to see anyone, this is part of what made her her and our hearts become attached with hers. Each one of us will grieve in their own way and time and it is no ones right to judge another on how to grieve, just remember Tristan is looking down and the last thing she will deal with is not respecting each other, and I dont know about you but as her husband I've been on her bad side and thats the last thing I want.
To all the family and friends, Till the good Lord calls us all home and we can have a reunion with Tristan, my prayers are with you.
To the love of my life, my only, my wolf, and my baby, Till I am called home and can run to you and hug my dear missed friend, I love you and miss you,
