I would like to offer my sincere condolences to the entire Ball family for the loss of Troy. God bless you in these difficult times, as my thoughts and prayers are with you.
Troy was a great friend in high school, and although I had not seen him since then, I did talk to him on the phone in 2004 through a mutual friend, and he was still the funny great guy, with the outgoing, likeable personality that drew so many people to him. Sorry that our friendship diminished through the years. You will be missed, by all of those people fortunate enough to have known you, including myself, but the memories will endure forever. May you rest in peace my friend.

I have never in my life felt so much pain at once. You where a brother to me. I will miss our late night online game sessions and when I was shooting you left and right how you would say, "Must be the lag tonight or you're cheatin' Mr. Cotterman!" I will never find a better friend than I found in you. I can only hope that you felt as though I returned the favor. Miss you so bad right now buddy. Love ya!
