"It has been 2 years and still doesnt seem real. Man how i miss you and your smile and your goofy ways. We were lucky to have you in our lives. i know you are watching over us. That thought helps us get by but to have you here is the only way to ease the pain our hearts feel. We have no choice but to try and get by. We love you very much and miss you dearly. please keep watching over us and home. This night 2 years ago you gained your wings and are souring high to keep watch. its kind of like this is your new birthday with wings and all, but our hearts are broken and hurt.

"Hey sweetheart. Sure do miss you. Not a day that goes by that we don't think of you or are sharing our memories. I just hate that we have been deleted and blocked from your Facebook to post how must we miss you and love you. But you knew that and you are still here with us. You never went far from home or far from us. You knew who had your back. Well I guess you now have ours. You sure are missed. They say it gets easier as time passes. I just don't believe it. We are just passing the time. Some days we can share our memories and laugh at how silly youcould be. Then there are times we speak your name or say Travis would of done it this way or Travis would have said. Then the tears start rolling. You are still a big part of our daily lives. We get up look at your picture say good morning. We ride by the grave and slow down or stop even spin a wheel. Still hear your footsteps and look around to find nothing.that hurts. But I know you are still here. The way things have turned out is crazy. I know you are looking down tho. Until we meet again your daddy and I LOVE you and miss you everyday and always will. Thank you for being there for me in the years we had together. I love you like you were mine. I will always protect your memories."

"I had the opportunity to meet travis when I would take my vehicles down to the shop for Nelson to work on. Travis was young but he was grown past his years. He didn't hold back anything . He would tell you what was on his mind. He wasn't scared to take life by the horns and live it. I think he  learned that fro his father . Travis will be missed by everyone that knew him because if you ever met him, you couldn't forget him. See you in Heaven Travis."

""Nelson, thank you for giving me the opportunity to have met Travis. His heart and soul was unselfish. He came to me and we talked about our feelings. He was a great friend. Imagine an old man and a kid coming to terms with life. I loved Travis very dearly and he will be missed. My heart goes out to you and Tracie. There are no words that can soothe the heart but know that he loved both of you dearly. May his soul bring his loved ones together. David Ammons""

"I am very sorry for you loss of Travis. Jesus promised that “those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out. (John 5:28, 29) In harmony with God’s original purpose these resurrected as humans will have the opportunity to live on a paradise earth. (Luke 23:43) This promise future includes perfect health and everlasting life for obedient humans. The Bible says, “The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will reside forever upon it.” (Ps. 37:29)"

"My heart and prayers go out to Travis family. This is so tragic, a man lost so soon without completing his legancy. I was just a neighbor of Travis and Britt for a short time,  in that short time had few talks with Travis, he actually helped me fix my car to ready for inspection, this was my first encounter with Travis. We had talks about his dog and why the thing just kept barking at me and would never let me pet him,. Travis confinded in me once, guess he just needed to talk with someone, we talked for almost an hour about personal things happening in his life. Although I didn't know him as well as most, I still feel a connection and now I feel sadness. I know that no words or actions can  ever take away the pain but would like to help in some way. Only time can help healing. Britt I know that Travis was your provider in life and if you need anything please feel free to email me at, in your time, I may be ble to help you find employment. I know it is going to be tough supporting your family now that Travis has passed on. God Bless this Family!!!"

"I always called Travis "Buffet" when he was in Scouts, the frustrated kid who didn't win the Pinewood Derby but always packed enough food to feed everyone.
He would hike 10 miles with 20 lbs of food, and not complain,we all knew we wouldn't starve if Travis showed up.
Travis always had smirk and was never without something funny to say."
