Neighbors Blake and Anna Mazurek are doing something to help remember the boys. They, along with other neighbors, have started an online fundraising campaign to turn the pond into a memorial garden.

“This devastated the family and will forever change their lives,” Blake said. “The pond is now being filled in and in place the family would like to create a place of peace and remembrance. The community and friends of the Troyers want to help.”
