I remember when Troy was born and the day of his blessing. It was so fun to watch Lisa and Kathy with their baby "Troy Boy". They cuddled and spoiled him and were so cute. Lisa, Kathy, And their wonderful mother Nila have been my dearest friends. I am only sorry I did not hear about it until the day after his funeral I would have been there in a heartbeat for everyone. I love you all. Jill

Dear Tom and Nila, I know losing a child is not easy, but we have to remember they are in Gods hands. Whatever, the reason for passing, God is merciful and Understanding. We have to remember that God loves all his children, unconditionally. My heart and prayers are with you at this trying time. Peace and comfort be with you, the Love and Mercy of God be with you. Love, Rose J. Day
