I was looking at something else on the Internet and the name "Troy Workman" popped into my mind so I looked it up. Now I remember why; my mom Willa Rae "Billie" Hale Cook used to talk about Troy Workman and the Workmans. She was from Logan WV and loved her home town and people until her death in 2008. Just leaving this letting anyone from the family know that Troy is remembered.

I met Milton and Ruby only a few times, and it was many years ago. I had not heard of his passing. I have been going thuorgh my own difficult times, but his warmth and smile and the few soft and encouraging words he spoke to me so many years ago stuck with me, and that's how I ended up finding this website. Months ago I was clearing thuorgh some old pictures, getting ready to move on to the next chapter of my life. Listening to Jazz Music and I came across pictures of Donna and the Murrill children. It put a smile on my face, as I wiped away my tears. Those tears have returned to me now, finding out very much by accident of his passing. To Ruby and the rest of the family, please know that it is very much in part my memories of you and Milton that have helped me get thuorgh these times and keep a smile on my face and not let my experiences drag me into despair. My thoughts are with you all, you touched my life.I thank you for that, and for all the wonderful music.
