BUFFALO SOLDIER TROY JACOBS (Buddha) 2nd Line New Orleans: May 31, 2008

"Troy would want to be remembered as joy."

"He always did for others and himself last. It is hard to replace people like that. So hard to come by, so hard to come by... He will not be forgotten. He touched their lives, he touched mine."
-Jerome Daniels

"A Celebration of Life"

"...this horse (Boss - without rider) doesn't understand this is a celebration.
His celebration is his owner on his back."
--Leonard Acklin

"It is an honor to leave Boss with me. It is an honor and a privilege. I trained Boss... that horse dances. I broke him and everything... Troy left him to me. We would ride together. He was like a brother to me. Outside of horses... we're still friends."

-Shorty Whop, Buffalo Soldier

Although I never had the chance to meet Troy, through your photo documentation of his homecoming, I can clearly see how loved he is. Thank you for such a great job!!

Troy was the first born male in the immediate family and he was very special to all of his aunts. He was always the first to come and offer a helping hand. We will truly miss him more than words can express. However, God needed him more and we know that we will see him again.Today Troy's assignment is to watch over his family and friends. We love you Troy...Missing you Auntie Kay Kay

I cant believe that Troy is no longer here with us. We became very good friends many years ago it is with great honor to have had Troy in my life. All the fun times we had riding in Nomtoc and hanging out at Sheila's . Troy will truly be missed by many people and I know that I'm one of them. Take your rest Troy, job well done. I love you!!!

I miss Troy so much. His sister, Darryl, has been my best friend since we were both three years old and he became my big brother, too. He has not been forgotten....he will ride on forever!
