After being at the service yesterday I realized that I have so much more to say to the family.

The Lindsey Family - thank you for giving me my first job. You not only showed me what work ethic was but you took me into your family and treated me as your own.

Connie - thanks for being the "friend mom" that I could tell things to that my real mother wouldn't understand or necessarily want to hear.

Sue - we didn't know each other but knew of each other. I didn't visit the shop the way I should have but ran into Tray around town. Yesterday was a truly hard day for me maybe because I lost a true friend and maybe because I realized that I let life get in the way of staying close to the people that were true friends. What I really took out of the service is that you and Tray shared a love that many people don't have the opportunity to share. I left the service comforted to know that now matter how short Tray's life was it was most likely fuller than most people who live much longer.

The untimely passing of my nephew Tray is a tragic loss for our family, especially his Mother, my Sister, Connie and likewise Tray's brother Matt.

I have fond memories of when, I as a teenager, used to babysit baby Tray before they moved from Fargo. Buzz and Connie were SO PROUD of their children.

In the 70's I remember visitng Las Vegas and I couldn't wait to see my nephews and spoil them as only an Auntie could. I saw how Tray always watched out for his younger brother Matt.

I watched through the years how Connie and Buzz worked very hard at their Dry Cleaning business(s) all the while providing a loving home for their children.

Tray was a loving thoughtful son, brother, husband and father, whose impact on many lives will not be easily forgotten.

Sue and family- I stopped in the dry cleaners today and learned the news. I am so, so, so sorry to hear it. Although I did not know Tray well, he was obviously such a family man. Just from listening to him talk, he adored all of you and was so cute watching him with his granddaughter. I am so sorry for your loss. Please take care of yourselves and I will be thinking about you.

I got to know Tray when my son was playing baseball at Cimarron High School.Although I never knew him away from the baseball fields,I always looked forward to chatting with him at the park.He had a great sense of humor,was always fun to be around,and was a great mentor to his boys.
My prayers go out to Sue and her family in this time of sorrow.

So sorry to hear about Tray. While I was involved in WLL Tray was one of the long steady coaches and mentors to a good number of kids. His devotion to the game and kids that played it was unquestionable. I always enjoyed being around you on the field Tray!
God Bless your family and sorry for your loss Sue.

So sorry to hear about the loss of Tray. He was truly one of the best. WLL was fortunate to have him as a coach and a volunteer of just about anything asked of him. Even when he wasnt watching his boys play, or coaching his own team you could find him and Sue in the stands supporting other players that he knew. He will be missed on and off the field. R.I.P. and my prayers to his entire family.

I'm so deeply saddened to hear about Tray. While it's been years since our days of Western Little League, Tray will always leave a lasting impression in our hearts. As someone else said, he was a gentle giant.......and even after all these years, he is remembered for his love of kids and baseball. RIP Tray and may your family be at peace.

To the Lindsey Family,

There's "NO" words in the Universe, that can express what you are experiencing or can "Ease Your Pain".

My heart goes out to each and everyone one of you!

Be proud of this man, Tray the gentle giant, wonderful human spirit, compassionate to all who knew him.
Never speaking ill words of another, never asking anything in return.

A Man who would always "Go The Distance" for everybody around him.

Tray, is a man with Outstanding Character, who loved his family, and a man who just "Adored" his wife Sue.

He had such patience, that would exemplify the Sportsmanship he shared on and off the Baseball field, for years.

The privilege of knowing Tray almost for 24 years, and Coaching with him was a Honor. I'd love coming into the cleaners, we would talk about the times we shared and the stories we told, will remain very special in my heart.

Then never again to see that "Sincere" smile or hear that "Hearty" laughter, has left a cannon ball hole in my heart. I will miss you dear Friend!

The Lindsey Family and the Community of Las Vegas, has lost an Exceptional Husband, Father, Family man and most of all a tremendous citizen.

To everybody who knew Tray Lindsey, may his spirit beat in the "Hearts" of those who were touched by his "Love".

or maybe God has a Position in his starting line-up!

God Bless The Lindsey Family!
