Please accept my deepest sympathy.
I had often wondered how Mr. Troxler was doing, especially after losing Mrs. Troxler. They were such nice, fun neighbors at Ocean Lakes in the early 80's. Pease know you are in my prayers. They were a special couple and now they're reunited. God be with you all.

Dear Troxler Family,
I am so sorry to hear of your dad's death. I have such fond memories of camping with them at Rocky Knob, and at other airstream events. They were always so sweet and kind and fun to be with. I know you have lots of wonderful memories. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
