    My sincere condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Rolle. So sorry for your loss, please find peace and comfort during this trying time. Please read (2Cor 1: 3-4) of Gods word the Bible.

  5. Gabriel, February 22, 2017

    I wanted to express my sincere condolences to the family at this time. May your happy memories bring you comfort. And may the promises found in the bible bring you hope. Like the promise that soon “death will be brought to nothing” 1 Corinthians 15:26. Also we are promised that we can see our loved ones again at Acts 24:15.

  6. James, February 22, 2017

    My deepest sympathy for your loss. Sickness and death were never meant to be. (Rom. 5:12) So please take to heart God’s promise to end all suffering and resurrect our dear loved ones. (Rev. 21:3, 4) May these promises, soon to be realized, bring you comfort and strength during this difficult time.

  7. Debbi Miller, February 22, 2017

    Paula I’m so sorry to hear of Troy’s sudden passing. You two made a wonderful life with each other. He came to Delaware and adapted to your life so well. That really shows the true love he had for you. May all the memories get you through your many losses.
    We will miss seeing Troy’s smiling face while holding onto you at gatherings May he rest in peace.

  10. Aranetta Reed, February 22, 2017

    It’s so hard to find the words to express my deepest condolences to you Paula. Troy definitely put smiles on our faces at our Salem Hosp. HIM parties when he’d pop in. I still have my limo fan he gave us I saved for my hot flashes! He’d joke around with you and would have us all cracking up! The bond you two had was amazing! My prayers have already and will continue to be for you and your families strength through this tuff time. God will get you through!
