My heart has been totally broken. Yet, I'm so thankful for such wonderful memories of Troup to carry with me.

At each of Sealey’s, Troup’s, and John’s births, I was at the nursery window waiting anxiously for them. In my mind and heart, they were my children too. I saw them almost every weekend during their childhoods and had so much fun in play with them. I carry such vivid and wonderful memories of those most joyful and wonderful times.

Troup had a very special and natural type of human magnetism, which attracted others to him. Whenever he was out and about; people were especially inclined to engage and initiate conversation with him.

Troup was very kind hearted, very considerate, and so lovable. He will always remain in the most sacred place within my heart.

I am so saddened by the news of Troup’s death! He was truly one of the kindest souls I have ever known. I first met Troup when he would mow the common area on Bass Place and I feel blessed that I have been able to call him my friend since that time. I will truly miss not seeing him around the neighborhood doing lawns! He always had a smile and a wave that made me feel happy!!! May he Rest In Peace in God’s heavenly kingdom!!

Spending summers growing up with the Morton kids were some of my best childhood memories. Troup was a big part of what made it so fun and special. It will always see him smiling that sweet little smile and that is how I remember him. I will miss my cousin..

Troup was absolutely the most kind, thoughtful and loving person. I have the best memories of him out back by the fire. Him and Brendan would go around collecting pine cones and Christmas trees to burn. I remember putting my two young kids to sleep and right outside the window would be Troup and Brendan burning everything they could get their hands on. I loved looking out the window and always seeing them laughing. Troup loved to laugh and thought anything and everything was funny. My kids absolutely adored him and loved playing tricks on him. He would always play along with their creative minds and let them try to fool him. He was so great with them. Truly the most thoughtful and kind person I've ever known. We will miss him so much and there will never be a fire out back where we don't think of him. Sending the family so much love and comfort. Much love to our friend Troup!

My deepest sympathy to Troupes family. I’m sure he will be sorely missed by you as we too mourn the passing of such a lovely gentle soul as Troupe had. He always, always had a smile and genuine kind greeting for everyone. I’m so very sorry for your loss and ours as well.
