He was the Greatest Man I ever Knew Beside God and My Own Father! He Was So Humble, Loving, and He Loved Life! He Was Always There To Help Anyone Who Needed Help! Whether They Were Homeless, Down and Out! He Seemed To Comfort Them And They Would Comfort Him! He Will Be Sadly Missed Me And By The Thousands Of Friends He Has Made Through out His Life! And We All Need To Thank Him For His Service For All Of Us! Love Ya Troy Rest In Peace!
