    Such a shock to see this. Such a young age. I wish to give my sincere deepest condolences to all the families. Is such a hard thing, but with faith, we all can be strong and know that Troy is among angels!

    So sorry for your loss. Donna was our neighbor for many years and was very sweet to us and our girls. She watched them grow up. Her sister Pat lived next door to us and we would always have talks with them about the neighborhood gossip or just to see how each others families were doing. She will be missed but know for sure she’s living high with Bill and with her twin sister Pat and other family as well. Thoughts and prayers with family.
