Not sure what to say?

I went to high school with Travis and spent many hours hanging out with him and our group of friends. Wade Stanton kept me abreast of Travis' life after high school, and I was sorry to hear that he passed away last month. He was a unique guy that will be missed by many. My thoughts go out to his family, as I know he loved you all very much.

Irene, Mary Lou, Ed & Sherry, Mandy & Marty, My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I was devasted to hear of Travis' passing. I have a ton of memories with the entire family and extended family. You were all like family to me. Travis will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

Travis was a gentle spirit and kind man. He showed many of us in different ways how to become better individuals. A life lesson that will forever live in my heart because of him.

You will be greatly missed! I'm sorry I can't be there to pay my respects.

Travis, David Bertino, Pat, Joanne, Vince and Tony Vitalone, Tammy Bartholomew, and Tammy Green we were all childhood friends. I have so many wonderful memories of us growing up together during those endless summers on Granger Street. Travis was a great friend. He made significant impact on our hometown in a life cut all too short. Our deepest condolences to Irene, Laura and Gabe.

I had the pleasure if knowing Travis since he was a young teen when I met and became friends with his mother. He was an exceptional young man and an even more exceptional man. His was a wonderful friend and inspiration to many. My deepest sympathies to his wife, daughter and to my dear friend Irene. I am sorry that I am unable to be present on Wednesday, but I will not return from California until Thursday. Irene please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you.

Dear Travis,
Rest in peace. You were an exceptional person here on earth. I shall always remember you as a fine friend of my son, a friend I always liked.

Dear Irene,
My heart goes out to you. Please accept my sincere and deep sympathy at this time of great sorrow. May you find comfort in knowing that others care, and that the sadness of death gives way to the bright promise of immortality. God Bless you and all your family.

I had known Travis from being a merchant in Canandaigua. We had simular stores so we got to be very good friends. He will be sadly missed by the Canandaigua Community as well as the Pagan Community. He is now in the hands of the God & Goddess and they have eased his pain and suffering.
Blessed Be,

Travis was my 'brother in all but blood'. He was my 'bridesmaid' when I got married, and I was very blessed to officiate at his wedding to Laura. He was such a determined and playful and funny and thoughtful and curious and caring man. His love of life was clear to anyone who saw him. He faced cancer with such practical strength and fearlessness - what's the next step, what's the next option. In 13 years, I only once saw him anxious, and it was for those who loved him, his wife and daughter...

Travis, you truly were an inspiration to all who's lives you touched. You will be missed, but never forgotten. You taught all of us so much and I'm sure you will never know the depth of what you did for us. God Bless You and Uncle Walt
