    Troy was a very precious man whose heart was filled with love for everyone and everything. In the mid 90’s, Troy attended a workshop where I worked. Each day when he arrived for work, he always greeted you with a cheerful hello and a smile. Troy was always happy and cheerful. His happiness made those around him feel joy and would put smiles on every ones face. God took home a very special man and friend. He will be missed by those who had the opportunity to know him and loved him. God Bless You Troy.

    My deepest sympathy goes out to the family and friends. Death is the hardest thing to deal with in life. I know words can do little to take away the pain and suffering, so may the Good of comfort be with your family, helping you to cope.
    I have found free, comfort, information on http://www.jw.org. I hope it can prove to be a solace to you as well. (1 Thessalonians chapter two verse sixteen and seventeen.
