  1. Martha, May you know that God is with you as you grieve the loss of Troy. May you feel the arms of Jesus holding you and giving you the strength you need. It is at a time like this, that we find comfort in knowing that this earth is not our home. Eternity with Almighty God is our real home and we are here for a short time. We know that Troy is with his Father in heaven and is free from all illness and pain and for that – we are so thankful. Troy’s kind and sweet spirit brought joy to so many people. We will always remember his smile.

    May “The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace.” Numbers 6:22-27
