    Troy, you have been there for my family for over 20 years. You have been like a grandpa to me and to Zoe and Bentley as well. We will miss you so much! We will miss you bringing us pizza to every occasion, laughing at the kids, and that contagious smile. You will be greatly missed and appreciated.
