    Starnes Family;

    I am sorry to hear of the passing of your brother. I recall your mom speaking of him often when she worked for my dad at Roane’s radio and TV. May God be with you in the days ahead and leave with good memories.

    Linda and Mike,
    It’s Sherry Hensel Garcia Huycke. Haven’t seen you in years and even longer since I saw Troy. I’m so sorry for you and the family. Losing friends from high school brings our own mortality closer. I pray for comfort for you all.
