Tina, today is one shock after another for me. I no longer get the paper since my own father recently passed on and try to come online. I learned a church favorite died(very young), Gene Farinacci from Monaca(worked at Kaufmanns with me for many years) passed away, and as I was surfing the site, the biggest shocker was Troy's death. I am sooooo sorry, Tina. You and I are two tough women, because life certainly had its' ups and downs for both of us over the years. You never gave up(especially with Courtney), always did what you had to do to stay afloat, and I know you will rise above this, too. I will pray for you and your family to get through each day in 2012.I hope to see you in the future. Take care, and God's Blessings on you. Grace Solimando

To the family of Troy, I was sorry of to hear of Troy's death. All of us at Pittsburgh Cancer Institute always enjoyed seeing him. Troy was the friendliest man with a big smile ALWAYS, and a great sense of humor. He brought alot of good conversation to other patients and brightened their day. He thanked us often, but we often thanked him for teaching us alot about fight and courage. We were glad we could be there for him during his treatment. Fondly, Nancy Griffith, RN
Planning ahead is prudent. Call us now.

Hi, you don't know me but I met your husband at the Hillman Cancer Center. I thought he was a neat guy. I will never forget him telling me that he considers his boots his bedroom slippers. Your husband and mine(Doug McClelland)were instant friends when they met at Hillman. They both shared the same disease. My husband passed on December 7th, 2011 after a 15 month battle. I wish I could hug you because I know exactly what you have gone through and are going through....this disease is horrible. I do know that they are sharing stories together again. May God Bless You and Your Family, Kathy McClelland
