Dear Kraus family,
I am so terribly sorry to hear about your loss. During the time I lived in Thousand Oaks, Travis was a great friend to me. In fact, my only friend. Since I live in Las Vegas now, I happened to be at my grandmas house across the street from yours and she apparently told my mom she thought something happened to Travis.
I last saw Travis in Newport a few years ago, he is very missed I am sure. Thank you for blessing me with the chance of knowing Travis, you are all in my prayers Jennifer. I am so sorry.

Dear Kraus Family,
Jean Luc just found out about Travis' passing. We are all so extremely sorry for your loss. What a beautiful young man he was. That huge smile, twinkle in his eye and oh, those bear hugs.
We saw him at Mastro's and often at the TO Dog Park. I am sorry we missed the Celebration Of Life for him. You have a dear angel watching over you now.
Please accept our deepest sympathies The Renault Family.

Dear Linn & Jen:

We were truly heart broken to learn of Travis' passing.

Sadly, we only heard of his passing after services were held. Had we known, of course we would have been there to share in his Celebration of Life and share a hug or two with Dear Friends in their time of sorrow.

You are both truly such wonderful parents ~ who give everything you have to those you love. I just bet Travis is telling God right now how very lucky he was to have you in his life.

Travis is at Peace now....and we pray Peace will soon find you as well.

Our Love and Prayers are with you Both,

Thinking of you all... My Dustin will show Travis around Heaven <3

I was at TOHS today and ran into a fellow teacher who said there was a guest book online. I was Travis' junior English teacher and I remember him well. He was smart, kind and always courteous. I am sorry for your loss.

To The Kraus House and all who loved and lost a son, brother, nephew, cousin, friend. Our thoughts and prayers are with each one of you during this very difficult time. Our deepest sympathy extends far beyond what words can express. Sending our love your way.
December 21, 2012
I am sadder than words can express and so sorry for your loss. I know Travis was loved beyond measure. I only met Travis in person once, but still feel I know him a little through Maegan. I came to know Maegan well during the time she worked with my son Kyle, and her brothers and family mean the world to her. I can only pray that all of you will somehow find the strength to heal and cherish the gift that his life was.
December 21, 2012
I remember Travis as a cute little boy with glasses, and it sounds like he grew to be a wonderful young man. Kraus family, I'm so sorry for your loss. Sending love and prayers from St. Louis.

My Dear Kraus Family,
We love your beautiful son Travis. He would walk through our door with that big beautiful smile and then give us those big bear hugs where his arms would wrap around our bodies and make us feel so loved...He is a beautiful soul, we will forever and always have him in our hearts. You are amazing parents who celebrate life everyday. Our sorrow is overwhelming, our love and prayers for healing for all is what we can ask for. We love you and are very sorry for your loss.....

The world is sent angels to walk amongst us - and Travis was one, he touched the lives of all he met. The world is a better place for having had Travis in it. An angel called home too soon.

Krauss family
I had the pleasure of meeting your son while working at T.O P.F. Chang's. I have two young sons of my own and I can only hope they will have the same type of light and love that Travis possessed. I always tell my boys that they are on loan to me from God and one day he will want them to return. I am so sorry for your loss.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Travis was a good friend of mine in high school and we grew even closer afterwards with our special bond in seeing eachother at meetings. Your son taught me how to surf and helped me through my difficult times. He was the only man who called me his hero after completing an Ironman this year. That's what kind of person he was:kind,handsome,caring,and a real go getter! xoxo
December 19, 2012
Travis you will be missed in this earthly world. Now your parents, sister and brother have a new angel. Watch over them and guide them to strength and grace.

Hi Mr and Mrs Kraus- I don't know if you remember me or not but Iwas Dustin's tenth grade history teacher. Even though I didn't have Travis in my class, I still "knew" Travis through Dustin. It was funny but Travis and I would run into each other at random times. I saw him at a grocery store before he left for Germany- he was sooo excited about traveling in Europe and I was a little jealous of him for being able to do that. The last time I saw Justin was this year when I had called to have some furniture picked up by the Salvation Army. You can imagine my surprise when Travis jumped out of the truck and immediately began to talk about what he was doing with his life. I was so proud that he was going to school and working on his degree. I am truly sorry for your loss. He was a special person.
December 18, 2012
So sad to hear about your loss, we remember enjoying overnight sleep overs with Travis. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during these difficult days.
December 18, 2012
We will miss you brother. The angels are better off, now that you have joined them, as we were, when you were here.
December 18, 2012
My heart aches and there are not any words big enough to express my deepest sympathy. You are in my heart and prayers.
