Angie, Leia, and Lance,
You're in my thoughts and prayers. Troyse was a good man which pretty well says it all. While we miss him terribly, I believe that he is rejoicing with his Lord and Savior and the Blackmon and Boman clan that was waiting the welcome him. Troyse and I talked the weekend before he passed and I will never forget him telling me that day that he was in God's hands and that the only thing we needed to do was trust in Him.
All my love,
