Carrie Underwood's big heart was on full display last night on Twitter when she sent out a heartfelt prayer to a family suffering from a devastating loss. "May the good Lord watch over the Bengel family," Underwood tweeted, attaching the photo above. "Rest in peace, Trent."
Sister Brooke Bengel helped make Carrie 14 yr Trent's First Kiss
"Trent had a personality and a smile that was one of a kind. His sense of humor and love for life had an impact on everyone around him whether he was hanging out with friends and family at Chippewa Lake, camping out, at the baseball field or basketball court, at the movie theater, or Michigan's Adventure. Trent was caring to everyone he came in contact with whether you were young or old and was ALWAYS able to make you smile and feel good."

Something You Might Not Know About Me: I've been married to my wife Susan for over 24 years. She is a now runs her own business writing grants for non-profits in Michigan. My youngest son, Ben (19), had major brain surgery for seizures in Aug '05. He is completely recovered and is a sophmore at GVSU! My other son, Harry, is 21 wants to be a Naturalist/Vet goes to MCC.
My big life changing experience was a motorcycle accident during the Roofsit in Sept '06. It was humbling to have so many listeners praying for me during my 6 operations. I was off the air for 6 weeks and in a wheelchair for about 5-6 months. Since then I have experienced complete kidney failure and have been on dialysis for 2 years. Spring of 2010 I organized TEAM CONRAD for the National Kidney Foundation of Michigan. Our 1st Kidney Walks did over 100K-- WOW! I was blessed in Jan 2011 with a kidney transplant from listener/donor Kristin O'Leary from Grandville. I have so much to be thankful for... but especially for your thoughts & prayers.
