|Let the memory of Robert be with us forever|
"Nine years ago, I was woken up to a phone call with the worst possible news. When I received the news that you were gone. My heart dropped and I couldn't catch my breath. I remember being so angry because I couldn't except the truth. I called your phone right away....for a moment everything was right again because I heard your voice. I remember saying your name a couple of times before your brother said he wasn't you. I fell to the ground and couldn't function. I just laid on the cold tile until I could accept that you were gone. I think about you often. You are missed so much. I hope you knew how much I loved and cared for you. You will never be forgotten Robert Curtis Travers. Thank you for the years of laughter and friendship. ~ Silvia"
"Another year has passed without you and I try to be strong once again. For the most part I am surviving but there are days when I miss you so much and feel horrible that you left this world. I wish my love for you could have saved you and kept you here. You were the best son, friend, brother, uncle anyone could hope for. I only wish I could remember every single thing you did and said. I wish I would have paid more attention to everything about you. I try to remember everything about you. All I know is that I love you and miss you and that my life will never be the same without you. I give God the glory because he is the only way I have survived at all. I cling to the old rugged cross and know someday I will see you again and that will be a glorious day! You were the perfect son and you are loved and missed dearly by me and your family and friends.You were and continue to be my inspiration you have taught me so much in your living and in your dying. You are loved and missed dearly. Love you . Mom."
"MY Robby I remember you today and every day I can't find the words to say .... All I can say is my heart aches to see you and hold you again and wish things were different. I try to understand and remember this is not our final destination. I know I will see you again in all your glory and what a reunion that will be. Until then I continue to remember the person you were and be inspired to be a little more like you every day. With God's help I will survive and live each day to the fullest and not take a single day for granted. Love you and miss you my baby . Love Mom"

"First I want to think my dear friend Ruth for doing this for me. I hope you don't mind Ruth if I share a little about you and how amazing you are. I met Ruth because she has a special needs child that I was fortunate enough to get to know and work with her child.Then we found out we were neighbors, and then she started working at the high school were Robby was going to school in the dean's office so he would often go to her office and chat. She and her special child would come to Robby's game and Robby was very appreciative of that. She was a very important person in his life and assisted him with being able to accomplish getting the scholarship at unlv. So to my dear freind I say thank you. Bonnie Robby's mom."
"My precious and dear friend Robbie! A day does not go by that I do not think about you. I love and miss you so much. You touched so many people life's . You were full of life! You were such a amazing, caring, devoted and loving son, brother and dear friend to many. You could walk in a room and brighten it up with your beautiful smile and laughter. That was just you. You loved your my mom more then life! I can't count the times we talk and it was always about your mom! How grateful you were for having such a beautiful and caring mom that loved you and we do anything for you. Gone but you will never be forgotten. Until we meet again my dear friend! I love you!! I wanted to create a memorial site where family and friends could come and leave message to keep your memory alive!! You mean the world to so many of us! The hardest thing I had to say was goodbye.
