Tripp Halstead - March 16th 2018, 07:24 AM

I have followed Tripp's daily updates for years now, and though he had taken a turn for the worse recently, his death was completely unexpected.

For those who don't know, Tripp was two in 2012 when a tree limb fell on him at daycare leaving him with severe brain damage. His family has been posting daily Facebook updates on his progress since. They attracted over a million Facebook followers and have done a ton of interviews over the years. Here's a link to the official Facebook page:

I think I may remember hearing about him back in 2012, but I didn't know that his family has posted daily updates on him. I went through the Facebook page and read through some of the updates and it really is sad to hear that he has passed away. I will be thinking of everyone who is impacted by this.

I've never known about Tripp so feel a bit of a fraud commenting, but that is so sad. Such a lovely family too. Thoughts are with them.

Like Holly, I didn't know anything about this child. I am sorry and will be thinking of his family and friends.

I had not heard of this little boy but I am still sad to hear that he lost his life and that his family is having to cope. I hope that with time they will be okay as I know coping with grief can be quite difficult.

Since this seemed like more of an update than a request for support or advice, I've moved this thread over from D&G. Feel free to contact the CE&D moderator or a Project Advisor if you'd like it moved back.
