‘‘Even though having to bury a son is painful, I am hopeful that he has found peace and rest in the bosom of the Lord. Knowing this gives me some relief and strength to carry on with life. I draw my strength from the Lord, and I know He is with us in this dark hour of loss and pain.''
He expressed appreciation to people who have reached out to encourage the family following the death of Troy.
