My dearest friend Travis! I am thinking about you on the third anniversary of your passing. Three years ago you were at my condo watching t.v. after a fun day at the festival in Larkspur, Colorado. Between 1:00 a.m. and 3:00 a.m. you quietly passed at my home. I love you..I pray for you. Every time I see a rainbow. I think of u...Miss you. Anita

Dear Travis, I have been thinking about you this week, especially on the 2nd year of your passing. I think about you often, your smile, your stories, our good times at JD's Bait Shop and others. :) I have seen many rainbows in the sky and know you are in Heaven with your loved ones. I see you and your Mother painting the rainbows in the sky....God bless you my friend.

Today I heard Sublime's "Santeria" song and it brought memories of Travis belting that song in my car. As I sang the words at my desk, I also cried for my friend :( I miss Travis' texts, calls, voice. We would be planning trips to Mexico City or Brewery Bar. We loved to eat and drink :) Travis and I went to Blue Bonnet a few days before he passed, that was a great memory also.... I miss you my friend, every day... :(

Ken and I were reminiscing on some memories of Travis. We're both so grateful that he was an influence and a great friend. I'm still so sad that he's gone. There won't be a day that he's not missed, and not one has gone by that he wasn't.

Thinking about you today and how you would text me 'Hello Dahling" and we would make plans to go eat at Brewery Bar. Always ordered some Margarita's, the half pitcher, and you loved the Guac n chips to start. I miss you so much and pray and think about you every day my friend, you are in my heart. May God Bless you.....

Thank you to everyone that attended Travis's funeral and thank you for your continued prayers and shared memories. Travis was loved by many and will always be remembered fondly. As we cope with the heartache and the hole that is left in our lives, remember that he is at peace and no doubt enjoying himself in heaven with those that went before him.

Trav, I miss you so much. I look at your pictures and my heart aches. I love you so much and to know I cannot see your smiling face hurts. I take comfort in the fact I know you are happy and at peace, but I can't help to be so very heartbroken. I love you brother..........forever your big sis!
Posted by Anita Sanchez on 25th July 2013
I am thinking of you today Travee and praying for you! You left us too soon. Every time I look at your pictures, my heart goes back into sadness thinking I won't ever get a text, a call, a visit. I miss you my friend. I know you are with those you love up in Heaven and having a good time :) That makes my heart happy again.......

I have been friends with Dan a long time. 25 years or so. He has been in my life for all my major events. My marriage, the birth of both my children, my 21st and holidays and everything in between. We had too many misadventures to list here just suffice it to say I will miss him for the rest of my life. He was my sidekick, my brother and my best friend. I love you Dan.

Trav- Every meeting with you was always something to remember. You were always so well with your words that you always made my head big, even though it wasn't intentional. Thank you for showing me good times, and taking me out for my birthday a few years back. I will never forget. <3

I will never forget you Trav. You left such an imprint on my life without me even realizing it, and you will be sorely missed.

I will always remember Travis as my sister's good friend and former roommate. Anita is her name. My sister never had a bad word to say about Travis, rather 'he's my good good friend and will always be'. I know she enjoyed him and his company. They had a lot of good times. Travis truly left a footprint in her heart. Thank you Travis for being good to my sister. May you rest in peace.

Words can not describe the sadness........ I met Travis on a cruise years ago and had one of the best times of my life with him! He was a great man and will be truly missed. God bless all his family and friends.

Trav, you will always have a place in my heart. You were not only a best friend to me, but to many others. You always made me laugh. Whenever you came over I knew it was going to be a fun yet crazy time mixed with a "little" SoCo and some nakedness. I will miss you forever.
Posted by Danalee Diaz on 17th July 2013

I can't even begin to put into words how sad my heart is right now. Travis was my "best friend" like he was to many. Not only was he the comedian in my life, he was real and true. He would do anything for his family and friends. If it had the word "fun" in it, Trav was there :) Our friend word for eachother, was Dahling. My dahling Trav, I love and will miss u. You will ALWAYS be with me

Travis was a true friend and was if you were having a down day he knew how to make you smile by cracking a joke or just being Travis. All I know, it has been the best 9 years or so that I have know him and meeting some of his great friends family along way. Travis you will always be in my heart and memory. Travis you will be forever missed!!!

Diaz, this is what my family called him. He was a great friend and spent many family gatherings at my house. He was closest to my sister Randi, but the entire family got to know him and he will be forever missed.....I am just shocked and looking at these pictures makes me laugh and cry at the sametime. Miss You already....

I can't even put into words how I feel at this point. The loss of Travis is soaking though everything I am. Completely devastated. He was more than a "best friend". He was one of only two people that I know that would unfailingly be there to save me from any injustice or accident rain or shine. There's a reason that we all feel this so acutely. There is no one like him.
