“Guys, I just got the terrible news about an amazing guy Troy Gentry—passed away this afternoon in a helicopter crash and my heart breaks, my heart hearts. I can’t help but go back to 10 years ago when I lost my dad in a tragic helicopter crash as well—an experience that me and my whole family witnessed.”
“I just want to say for everybody out there that’s hurting— I know there’s a lot people that loved him, a lot of people that are affected by this. That there’s a lot of joy, there’s a lot of peace, there’s a lot of understanding if you lean on the Lord, lean on His words. Dig into the Bible.
“I’m serious I can’t really explain it, it’s pretty unexplainable but it’s a crazy joy that God can only give and a crazy amount of peace. So for those that are hurting, I encourage you in that and for Troy, I love you, you’ll be missed and say hey to my dad up there in Heaven, would ya. Take care, God bless.”
