  10. The times I was able to see and speak with Troy were few and far between, but the impact of his words and personality made him unforgettable. One of the things I remember most about him is how, unlike most people, he did not judge others by their appearance. The last time we spoke, he was so kind to let me know he had a high opinion of me. I hope he knew how much I appreciated his words. I will forever carry your name with me as inspiration as I try to accomplish great things in life, Troy.
