There are no words to express the loss of a loved one. Your dear one is in the memeory of pur Fathwr above, who helps provide comfort. 1 Cor. 15:26

Clydie, Harold & Linda my thoughts and prayers are with you.

I met Travis through a Hydrocephalus group that we were a part of, as he is a Hydro brother of mine, I too am a Hydro warrior. As such, Travis' passing hits VERY close to home for me. I love you bro, I miss you dearly, even if we never got the chance to meet in person in this world.

I know I will see you & meet you one day in heaven. Thank you for being such an inspiration to everyone whose lives you touched, including mine.

To your family: I'm sorry for your...

We are so sorry for your loss may God be with all of you through this time

To my wonderful cousins...I am heartbroken at the loses you have experienced these last few days...Travis nor Mary Ann can ever be replaced but they can be remembered and loved. Until we meet again on the other side...

Jimmy, Just want you to know that we are praying for you and your family.

I am so sorry for y'alls lose.
I meet Travis through Facebook, through groups.
He helped me understand what hydrocephalus really was about because until my daughter was born I had never heard of it.
I wish we could've meet him in person. He was so nice, kind, caring person. Rest in peace Travis, you are now completely healed. Prayers for the family and friends.
