Fees: Company does not charge Campaign Organizers any upfront fees for Campaigns. Company retains a portion of each Donation contributed to Campaigns in the amount of four percent (4%) ("FrontRunner Professional Fee"). A portion of the Donation is payable to our third party payment processors ("Processing Fee").

We reserve the right to change any of the Fees from time to time. If we change any of the Fees, we will provide notice of the change on the Website or otherwise, at our option, at least fourteen (14) days before the change is to take effect. Your continued use of the Services after the change in any of the Fees becomes effective constitutes your acceptance of the new Fees.

If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: "A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR". To the extent you are a resident of another jurisdiction, you waive any comparable statute or doctrine

Personally Identifiable Information is requested when you register with us, make a Donation, correspond with us, or otherwise volunteer information, for instance, through the use of "Contact Us". Personally Identifiable Information may include, without limitation, your name, mailing address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card number, and other identification and contact information.

    "Non-Personally Identifiable Information" refers to information that does not identify a specific individual by itself or in combination with other information.

This information may include the Site’s Uniform Resource Locator ("URL") that you just came from, which URL you next go to, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol ("IP") address. A URL is the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web (‘Web”). An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol ("TCP/IP") network, such as the World Wide Web. Networks use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address of the destination. In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web, allowing Web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the Internet, browse and shop

  3. Choice

    Company will offer you the opportunity to choose (opt-out) whether Personal Information is to be disclosed to a third party or to be used for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected or has subsequently been authorized. For Sensitive Personal Information (when applicable), Company will give you the opportunity to affirmatively or explicitly consent (opt-in) to the disclosure of the information for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected or has subsequently been authorized. Company will treat Sensitive Personal Information it receives from anyone the same as it would treat its own Sensitive Personal Information.

Please share your favorite memory of Trenton to be included in a special keepsake book for the family.
Trenton C. Pickell-Veilleux was born on August 21, 2007, in Greenville, SC. He immediately showed how tough he was by getting brain surgery before being able to leave the hospital after birth. Every year after that, something new would challenge him medically but the kid would continue to fight and amaze! He was eventually diagnosed with Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome, a rare form of epilepsy, which meant that all kinds of seizures were just a part of his daily life. But what would have been impossible for others did not for a minute stop Trent from being the happiest, funniest, craziest kid that anybody would ever want to know. Even though he was considered “non-verbal”, you just could not put a cap on his explosively wonderful personality, which Trent always showed off in the craziest fashion.

Trent adored blowing raspberries, and could do that for hours, without his lips ever giving out! He was quite agile at pointing his left foot at you to get your attention or pulling that same foot up to his face, blowing bubbles once again into his foot or playing with whichever pair of fuzzy socks he had on that day. He would listen attentively to things until he wanted to chime in, and then it was a contest to see who could be the loudest.

Trent and his dad had the best relationship any father and son could have. Trent was affectionately called crazy kid, and man they were crazy kids together. Starting when Trent was a baby, they had created their own method of communicating using raspberries and fart noises which would put a smile on anyone’s face that heard the silly conversations they would have. While Trent was lucky to have such a loving father, his father was even luckier to have such an incredible son! This had become so clear to his father in the past few years when they got to live together full-time and grew so much closer to each other during what were his father’s happiest years of his life. Trent did so much for his father, from unconditional love, to unknowingly guiding him in decisions that Trent was always a priority in. His father will miss his crazy kid so very much, and one day they will be space hippos together again cruising the cosmos.

Trent loved his mother very much as well. They also had a special relationship. While him and dad had a more verbal type of relationship, him and his mother had a more physical one, at least when Trent was young and not such a crazy little teen rebel. They would hold hands for hours and giggle at the silliest things. He loved to cuddle and explore things with his hand. Just like his father, his mother was so lucky to have been blessed in life with such an incredible son. When Trent was born, he became her everything, he changed the trajectory of her life for the good and she will be forever grateful for the gift of love and life that he provided her. His mother will miss her silly cuddle buddy so very much, and one day will pick right back up with a cuddle as though it were just a blink of an eye.

Beyond his Father and Mother, Trent had a wonderful and loving family! Being such a funny kid, that paired up quite well with his Uncle Charlie, who also has a knack for kidding around. It was hilarious to watch them try to pick on each other. Trent was truly his uncle’s little buddy. And, when he was around his Gramma, he was constantly trying to avoid the barrage of kisses she delivered daily, as she would call him her Trenton kitten, or her Trent-o-potamus. And, about the only time he would tolerate a long drive, or cooler weather was if he was going to the country to see his wonderful GGMa and GGPa. He also loved naps, which he took a great deal of with his Aunt Allyson after they were done playing.

Trent loved going to school, and was in his own way, the class clown. We know that his school, teachers, and fellow students will miss his silliness. He loved fuzzy socks, fuzzy hippos, fuzzy kittens, fuzzy llamas, and his fuzzy Carl. He didn’t like the cold, the wind, the rain, or riding in the noisy van, and he would let you know when he really didn’t like something. But he also would let you know with smiles and giggles when something delighted him. He loved hearing fun kitchen noises which would get a giggle out of him every time, and supervising projects which he would coordinate with goofy raspberries.

Trent is survived by his dad, Tony Veilleux; his mom, Minna Pickell; his gramma, Lynn Vining; his uncle, Charlie Veilleux; his GGMa Chris and GGPa Rick Brooks; his PePe Ray Veilleux; his grammy, Andrea Pickell; his aunt, Allyson Wilfong; his uncle, Maurice Pickell; his nana, Victoria Pickell; as well as multiple aunts, uncles, and cousins.

A Celebration of Trenton's Life will be held 1:00 - 3:00 PM Sunday, December 18, 2022 at Palmetto Mortuary, 1017 Mauldin Rd., Greenville, SC 29607.

Because Trent loved his school so much and he would want to help others like himself, in lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to his school, the Washington Center School, 2 Betty Spencer Dr., Greenville, SC 29607, in Trenton Pickell-Veilleux’s memory, thank you.

Dear Father God, maker of the universe, creator of all that is seen and unseen, we gather today to celebrate the brave, amazing, loving life of Trenton Cole Pickell-Veilleux.
You blessed our lives, this world, the entire universe, when you, God, created him and allowed us the honor of being part of his life for over 15 years.
Now, you have relieved him of his challenged body, daily seizures, and physical pain, and we know the second his spirit left his body, he was immediately a Space Hippo, flying to all parts of heaven, and causing lots of noise, and being his Daddy’s Crazy Kid in the biggest way possible.
As our hearts are numb and sad without his physical presence here, we know that Trent is with us every day, now, and for all eternity. We know he is having a blast right now, and just let his happiness cover our hearts and surround us every day.
Thank you, God, for always keeping your hand on him, and giving us the greatest love of our lives.
When Trent was born, I found hope in James Chapter 1. But, the part that I will leave you with today is just the first part, “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters,[a] whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”
In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

I have struggled more than I ever thought I would, trying to find the right words that were what should be said… I’ll do my best to give my Trenton Kitten all the love and happiness possible, right now, because that is what he gave me every single day of his life.
When Trent was first born, I just plain didn’t understand what he was dealing with, or what his parents and his family would be dealing with, but that didn’t matter, because I immediately loved the little guy, and nothing else mattered. Now, after 15 plus years, I can honestly tell you that Trent was more of a whole person than anybody I know – his life was about giving unconditional love, joy, happiness, silliness, and everything that is important in life to all of us. But, not one moment of his life was spent worrying about superficial things, or drama, or ugliness of any kind.
He was blessed to have 2 amazing parents, though they were so young themselves, they just loved him completely and unquestionably. And, honestly, I think that through their own youthful inexperience, it made it easier for them to just roll with whatever was happening with their precious
Trent. They only saw Trent for who he was and is. They only saw his big heart, his exuberant spirit, his crazy, funny personality. They took on immeasurable responsibilities and medical challenges, that even highly experienced parents would go nuts trying to maneuver through, and they did it with all the greatest love that any 2 parents could ever give a child. They were a team. They always remained a team. Even when things shifted in their lives, Trent was always the center of their everything. I cannot begin to speak to the highest level of love that Tony and Minna have for Trenton, because it truly is immeasurable, and will last throughout eternity.
Over the years, Trent faced more surgeries and hospital visits than most people ever face in their entire life. But that never phased him. Trent loved life! He loved life, probably more than most of us ever learn, because he knew what was really important – love and happiness. One of the most remarkable things I have learned from Trent is how to love and to be loved, because Trent was literally PURE LOVE! I have told people over the years that I have learned so much from a child that can’t actually speak “actual words” than I have learned from any other person on this entire earth.
The last 3 years of Trent’s life, he was blessed to live with his Daddy full time. These were the most precious years that I’m really not going to be able to do justice with words, but I’ll at least try to give a few highlights. I would watch as his Daddy was so completely protective of his Crazy Kid, and how he gladly and willingly sacrificed just to be the most amazing Dad possible because Trent’s happiness and well-being was the ONLY thing that mattered. But, let’s not forget that Trent was and IS completely responsible for making his Daddy who he is today. Trent and his Daddy had the most amazing bond that just cannot be adequately described. It was precious. They literally had their own language of blowing raspberries (or bubbles, as I called them), and fart noises. Oh my gosh they could go on, and on, and on… and it was so much fun to listen to them talking to each other. And, Trent’s face would light up like a beacon when he and his Dad were together just hanging out, or playing, or talking. It didn’t matter what they did together, it was beautiful.
I loved to watch Trent also interact with his personality counter-part, his Uncle Charlie. They would joke with each other and just be completely silly. They interacted like class clowns do, with laughter, funny noises, and complete silliness.
And, as for me, I got the opportunity to hug and kiss him regularly… and, yes, that teenager did do his best to fight that off, but Gramma usually won the kissing battle. And, Trent absolutely did not like it when I would get fussy, because he would fuss right back at me. Like I said, he did not like drama, and boy he would let me know that I needed to just calm down.
Trent literally loved everyone in his family, everyone! But, we also know he had an extra special relationship with his GG Ma and GG Pa Brooks, his Grammy Andrea, and his Aunt Ally. If you are family, Trent loves you.
Trent also loved those who cared for him, and his friends, all those wonderful beautiful people at his school, the Washington Center School. It is something very special to watch the love that his teachers and paraprofessionals have always given Trent over the years. And, we are forever grateful! For those of you who would like to honor Trent, we ask that you consider a donation to his school, because they lovingly make such a big difference in the lives of children, like Trent, who face special challenges every day. Y’all at the Washington Center are part of our family forever. And, we are beyond thankful to you all.
Trent was and is the biggest character I have ever known! And, I will forever cherish every single moment I have been blessed to be able to spend with you, my little Trenton kitten. Fuzzy socks, hippos, llamas, kitties, Carl, bobbling your head to the sounds around you, shaking your legs in sheer excitement, pulling your leg nearly over your head just to show off, your crazy laughter, and especially for a lifetime of blowing bubbles. I always loved when you would work with me, as the very best supervisor and boss that anybody could ever have. You loved all the clanking and banging of every kitchen noise, and your laughter made work pure joy. Everything about you Trent, brings endless love and joy to my heart. And, even though I can’t physically touch you right now, that my heart is numb and hurting, I know that you are completely filling the entire universe with your amazing, loving, funny, awesomeness… so, all I have to do is breathe in, and you are with me always. I love you more than words could ever, ever, ever, express. I’m forever your Gramma, and I’ll continue to show you everything wonderful that I can throughout the rest of my life here on earth. I’ll continue to live the best life I can, for YOU. Enjoy the universe my little Space Hippo, and don’t worry, even though it may seem like forever to us left here on earth, we will all be with you again in the blink of an eye.

I met Trenton when he became a student in my class, just over 3 years ago. My first impression was that Trenton loved making noises- blowing raspberries, expressing his opinions during class discussions and singing during class songs. (Music was Trenton's favorite related arts class- he enjoyed rocking to the beat and singing along). Trenton loved when others made noise, especially if someone coughed, sneezed or burped. He was a true boy, who loved all the boy noises! I was able to do get him to do his schoolwork by using a whoopie cushion as an incentive; I even had a cookie sheet and a wooden spoon that I would bang to try to get Trenton to smile on picture day...long story.
Trenton did not like people entering into his personal space. (Which was a problem, be cause I am a personal space invader!). We came to a place where Trenton would tolerate my occasional head rubs and quick hugs. Trenton even got to the point where he would allow me to touch his left foot when I was reading him a story. He would smile that little lip curl smile when I tickled his foot!
I loved Trenton's fuzzy socks, (he had quite the collection), his Space Cat clothes and his creative Halloween costumes every year. (Although I was a bit jealous this year when Trenton won Best Student Costume at our Boo in the School event; he never won that in my class!).
I have several sweet memories of Trenton through the years, but my favorite one that comes to mind happened just a few months ago, when Trenton was down the hall in Ms. Woods' class. Trenton was outside of my classroom, and he called out in a loud, happy voice. One of my students answered him, and then a few adults and students joined in. For a few minutes, it sounded like we were all singing together- Trenton called out to his people and they answered. We were his people; everyone at school that knew him and loved him. Now we miss him and will keep him in our hearts forever. Thank you, Trenton for being a part of my life.

Trenton Cole aka pickles, you will always have a special place in my heart. The short time I got to work with you, I got to see a side of you I will never forget, a sweet loving young man. The boy who doesn’t like anything showed me that was just a front to try and keep people from making you do work. You would always predict the weather, tell us the days of the week and give all of gramma’s kisses away.

I will miss your smile, laughter and silly sounds my little Chewbacca.

I had the wonderful privilege to be Trenton's teacher for over 3 years. I started my journey with him at Hollis and continued at the main campus at Washington Center. From the very beginning I knew he was a special unique kid. I saw all range of emotions but most of all he was a happy child. His laugh and smile is what I will always remember about him. Also for his unique manner of making choices for things he wanted and things being asked of him. He would always turn his head ever so slightly to the object, person, or tactile symbol of the choice he preferred. You may have to wait awhile ,but he would eventually make a choice "his" choice. That was Trenton! I will miss him and know that he is in a better place and is now looking over me and watching the choices I make to try to make the world a better place. He definitely did while he was he with us.

Trenton was Eliah's classmate for many years at the Washington Center. He really did stand out as the class clown, and we always had to say Hello to him every time we visited the class. Eliah hasn't interacted with many other students that I know of... but he certainly did with Trent, and picked up some of his mannerisms, too! It's easy to see that Trenton had a wonderful impact on all those who were around him, and I know he will be missed and remembered by all.
