We have had so many fun adventures together. My favorite memory and I still laugh about this today was on the cruise when he and Muchos busted a buffet and then one of them ripped a fart on the elevator and the little boy on the elevator with them called them out on it. Hahahahaha. Much love!

After my c section i was panicked that they were taking so long to bring the baby from the nursery. I was crying when Troy walked in and he asked what was wrong..through tears i cried "go get my baby". Troy grabbed Huck and they went to the nursery and he made the nurses give him a report and promise to bring me my child immediately! He was an irreplaceable friend and integral part of my family! To say I miss him doesn't even scratch the surface.

My memory of Troy was sooo very many years ago when we all went to Dollywood. Such a wonderful time. And yes he was a favorite son-in-law to Beverly!
