Troy was a friend of ours while we were stationed in England. Don (my deceased husband) and Troy were together at Bentwaters R.A.F England. We lived by the North Sea and Troy and his family would get together with us. Troy and Don Hale would get together to listen and record music and have a few beers and talk about our homes and families back in the USA. We all became "family" as service members do when your stationed together , especially Overseas. I will always remember Troy as a kind hearted, dear friend who would do anything for you. I suppose now Don and Troy will be listening to music together once more, in this beautiful place called Heaven, where there is no pain, only Joy, with God, where we will some day meet again. My condolences to all of Troy's family. Peace, Mary Angelina Hale, now Strothman
