Dear Cherry & Family,
We, The Career Magnet School Pantry Staff, Officers and volunteers extend to you and your family our deepest sympathy. We want you to know that our prayers are with you as you gather to celebrate Troys' life.
We remind each of you to stay encouraged and rejoice by remembering this poem:
No matter what your trails are, or how big your mountains seems;The Lord is there to see you through;He'll go to extremes. So if your cross seems hard to bear,and you know not what to do; The one who loves you most of all will be there to see you through.
Also remember we are here for you also, because you are our friend and we love you.

Humbly submitted,
CMS Food Pantry Staff and the families we serve.

I have know Troy since I checked into NSA Mechanicsburg as a Master-At- Arms in 2004. I am from New York and he swore he would make me a country girl and that he did. I love and will miss your sarcasm. Love Valerie Baham
