May you rest in peace in your new Heavenly home... You always called me your older brother and I loved you just like brother. Your smile, caring heart and love for life will always be remembered. Your passing leaves many sad hearts behind, but we all treasured the times spent with you!

Today is a very very sad day. A friend so dear will never again call to wish me happy birthday or happy Mother's Day. We shared many fun times, crazy times as well as serious and sad times. I will miss you as long as I live. Fly high my boy. By the way Troy, I did not just make this stuff up😘
