I do not know who will ever read this message but I know how I feel. I called Miami Valley Hospital and spoke to the nurse in charge of this young man Troy Davis. My request was an easy one and I believe that his family will appreciate my message. I wanted to let him and his family know that I care and hope that if he survives this tragic accident that he needs to put this behind him and move forward in life. They tell me he is in fair condition...not knowing what this really means...I still left my name and phone number if his family needs me. My name is Glenna Skaggs and I reside in Florida. The woman you are speaking of, Melanie Holthouse, is my baby sister, although we will miss her as well as her children Holly, who is just about to graduate High School, and her son David, the most amazing son that anyone would be proud of. My heart bleeds for Troy's family. This young man needs are love and prayers at this time. Forgiveness is not needed.. Take care of yourself enjoy life and we all wish you well. My Heart Glenna

from what i have heard and understand he had been in a rehab facility for drug abuse and was on drugs when this happened.it is very sad and tragic and this guy will have to live with it the rest of his life. if drugs were involved he should get the max for taking someones life. around here he is known as nascar troy because he only knows one speed. FAST. i truely hope that his parents will not find a judge they can pay off if charges are filed against him

My heart goes out to you and the family. I feel so bad for Holly, she is an incredible young woman and we will miss Melanie. Thoughts and prayers to your family. I only found this when looking to see if any arrangements had been made yet. Godspeed Melanie!

I didn't know Melanie personally but have several friends that did and from what I hear she was an awesome lady. It is so sad to think that in a matter of minutes her life was taken with no warning. I hope and pray the man that was driving the truck that killed her understands how many lives he has affected. I know he will have to live with this the rest of his life and hopefully... he will become drug free and stay that way. Only he knows the truth and the condition he was in when he hit her. He has to live with that forever.

Uh, isn't that why they do a toxicology report, so the police will know what condition he was in also? Douche.

I've known Troy most of his life he has had some problems, and yes his tox screen was clean. He's a good kid, my prayers go out to both families. I'm pretty sure it was also his birthday, so so sad.

Troy is the only one that knows what he was thinking at the time he was headed right for Melanie. The truth will come out! That's ridiculous at how far he came across the double yellow line! 8ft

YOU people are so sad, you seem to know all that went on, so was he calling you or just left your house?? If so you are no friend of his but just like CCity. you have to create gossip even when its your own gossip, only he and the ones directly involved would know this information so you see he will know who he told and maybe learn his true friends??Not the ones on here.
