Shelia and I have just returned from the second family funeral in less than two months. Shelia's dad, Levi Troyer, passed away last Wednesday, May 27th, at age 87. This was just seven weeks after Shelia's mom, Beulah Troyer, passed away. Her birthday would have been Friday, so several family members suggested that Levi must have wanted to be the "surprise guest" at her heavenly birthday party.
Levi is survived by his five children, 12 grandchildren, and his eight brothers and sisters (of whom he was the oldest).
Beyond sharing those facts, I'll defer to Shelia, whose column (below) shares several very personal thoughts about her dad's passing.
