Detroit Orblych Brothers Memorial

In the early morning of February 15, brothers Troy and Teague Orblych, were senselessly shot and killed defending their family and home from armed invaders, their lives snuffed out far before their time.  The invaders did not manage to get anything, even though they were offered anything they wanted from the house as long as they did not harm anyone.  They didn't take them up on that generous offer.

Troy and Teague Orblych were the salt of the earth, loving, caring, the best sons and brothers anyone could ask for.  Troy worked at the Walmart in Livonia as an assistant manager.  Teague worked as a librarian at the University of Michigan - Dearborn.  They were the backbone of their family and household both literally and financially.  They leave behind a 75 year old mother, sister who has multiple sclerosis and a brother who is developmentally disabled who loved to feed the neighborhood stray cats.

The family is trying to cope with this unthinkable tragedy.  To lose two sons/brothers in the prime of their young-at-heart lives to a merciless senseless act of violence is too much for anyone to bear.  The real world concerns of daily living are hitting home.  If there is anything you can spare, to help the Orblych family in their time of need, it would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks for letting me color the lives of Troy and Teague Orblych, just a little bit.  Gone but never forgotten.
