My heart is just broken over Troy. We have so many great memories of living next door to all of you. Kim, Little Troy, Kimmy, Toni, Kristi and Gang, know that I am prayering for all of you at such a hard time. I am so sad to know that Troy has left this earth, but heaven is a better place with him there. He was always so kind and helpful. I will never forget all of our happy times on Soult Steet. Rest In Peace, my friend. Debbie

I had the privilege of working with Troy in physical therapy. There was not a gentler soul. And he fought....fought hard to restore his body. He always had a smile on his face and a gentle spirit about him. He was so proud of his family and it was was obvious they brought him great joy. Earth's loss is Heaven's gain. I pray God will hold you and sustain you as you say goodbye to a great man.
