Honestly, do not know what to say here. I knew Troy for a small measurable amount of time; yet felt like I knew him for years. His knowledge at work was fathomless; what made it fun was not only learning from him; but showing him something new. His biblical mind was like no other. Such a passion and zest for learning and sharing God's Word, and with the ability to apply it to everyday life. His love for music became the mortar of our friendship. We were two old metalheads. He lived in both worlds as fan and musician. I will miss him. I will miss seeing him in the morning, conversations, making him laugh. My sadness is slowly becoming Healed, I am choosing to remember Troy with a joyful heart. Rest in Peace. Richard Thompson, July 1, 2016 We were so sorry to hear about Troy's passing. We hope that the love of family and friends will comfort and strengthen you in the days ahead. Brack & Dora Voyles, July 1, 2016 We never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make . Their love leaves an imprint in our memories... we find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love.... L Buscaglia Cherie, you and your boys are in my prayers and thoughts. I am just down the road. Let me know if you or the kids need help with anything.

Dierckman Family (Cavan, Robin, and Michael), June 30, 2016 I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Troy. The song keeps going over in my head. "When we all get to heaven what a day of rejoicing that will be, when we all see Jesus we will shout & sing the victory." I look forward to the day I get to meet Troy. You are all in my prayers & thoughts. Love, cousin Mary Mary Taylor, June 30, 2016 I wanted to leave a scripture of encouragement here. This one gives me great comfort at times of loss and I hope it will do the same for anyone who reads it. It promises we will be reunited with our loved ones in the kingdom of God. May God comfort you in this time of need. The family will be in my thoughts and prayers. Cherie and Troy, I love you both! 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 “Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage one another with these words.” Lindsay Rosson, June 30, 2016 Cherie, My heart is so broken for you. I cannot even imagine your pain.

So much love, Kim Kim Haile, June 30, 2016 A good man. I will miss you.
