he hung the moon...

...Is how Uncle Troy felt about his nephew Booderbean.
It has been one year ago today that we lost Uncle Troy, and there has not been a day since that we haven't thought about him, talked about him, and remembered him, and missed him with all our aching hearts.
I have been thinking all week about what I will put on my "Foto Faces Friday" post and how i wanted to make a post in my brother-in-laws memory, but i couldn't for the life of me figure out the angle i wanted to go with it. I started looking through old photos, and it hit me...i needed to post about the love that Uncle Troy had for his little nephew Booderbean!
While Military Man was deployed Uncle Troy and Aunt Tonya practically moved in to help me get ready for the baby! He was the best "mr. fixit" anyone ever met!
At Military Man's Welcome Home party
In Eureka Springs, these two had so much fun at the big park!
He sure did know how to make Booderbean smile

These photos say it all, he really did think that Booderbean hung the moon.

What a sweet tribute to a very special guy! I am sure he watches after BooderBean every minute of the day.

Everyone who met Troy was blessed just to know him. He really was such a wonderful man.

Just as Troy thought BooderBean hung the moon - he thought Tonya made the sun rise in the morning and set at night.

We all miss him greatly and have been thinking about Tonya and all of you this week.

Love ya!

Oh my, totally made me cry. Troy was such an amazing guy with a BIG heart. Everytime I saw him he was smiling-seriously everytime! It breaks my heart that he's gone-but I know he's watching after Tonya and Booderbean from above! Love to you all!!!
