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
