Uncle Troy was always a loving and kind man. He would always help anyone, even if he really didn't have it. He took in many children along the way. We will miss and never forget him. You are now in Heaven and you are breathing fresh cool heavenly air along with Grandpa, grandma, and Dad. Uncle Troy is not suffering no more. We love you all.
