  2. Dick Family,
    I am so saddened and sorry for your loss. Troy was part of “the gang”, part of our growing up together. So many laughs and good times. Troy was such a positive person; she will be missed.

  3. Dear Kay and Jerry;
    Mom and I are so sorry for your loss.
    Matthew 5:4 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.”
    May GOD’s love comfort you and your family at this difficult time.

  4. So sorry to hear of Troy’s passing. A life lost too young for sure. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

  5. Kay, Jerry, and Family,

    I was so sorry to hear of your loss. Having lost a son myself, I don’t believe there is any greater loss than that of losing a child, regardless of how young or old they are.

    I will remember Troy for the positive attitude that she demonstrated and the fun caring person that she was. I know that she must have had an impact upon the lives of many as her compassionate nature would have been manifested throughout her career in nursing as well in the lives of her friends and family. In essence, I think our piece of the world here is just a little better off, having had the opportunity to meet and get to know Troy professionally and/or socially.

    I join you in the celebration and appreciation of Troy’s life.

  10. Jerry, Kay and girls. My thoughts and Love are with you. I am so glad I had the good fortune to spend time with Troy and Gregory over the last 2 years as they gave their time and hearts caring for Troy’s Aunt and Uncle.

  11. Jerry, Kay, and family… I am so very sorry to learn about your loss of Troy. Fortunately, death is only a temporary part of life. Jesus promised us a wonderful resurrection of the dead (John 5:28,29/1 Thessalonians 4:13, 14), so we have the hope of being reunited with our deceased loved ones. In the meantime, even though the pain of loss through death may seem sometimes insurmountable, rest assured that God will give you the strength necessary to endure the coming months (Psalm 46:1).
