I am sorry for the lost of Uncle Troop he was like a brother to my dad Mutt and his Brother Big Lou Drinkard. I am glad I had a chance a few months ago to run into him at Northlake Hospital visiting someone else. Thank God I spent sometime with him. We were glad to see each other. Rest east uncle Troop gone but never be forgotten. Love always the Drinkard Family. I hate we missed his service.
