    Cindy and Family, My heart goes out to you all today after finding out about your loss of Travis. I have never met your husband but just watching you take such good care of Travis when you would come into Wal-Mart I must say you deserve the Mother of the Year award. You were so patient and God knew that Travis needed a loving, caring and patient Mom to take good care of him and that you did. I will keep you all in my prayers. I have to work tomorrow or I would be there for you all tomorrow. Just know that by the signs of the times it won’t be long until we will be going home too to see our loved ones in a place where there are no more heartaches, no more tears and no more pain or suffering and no more good-byes. May God Comfort You all in a way that Only He Can. Hugs and Prayers, Pam

    So sorry for the loss of your son/family member he will be missed by a lot of people

  15. Cathy Skinner May 11, 2013 at 3:56 am

    My heart and prayers go out to all of the family, especially Cindy. I meet Cindy and Travis a long time ago, and when I saw one, I saw the other. Very dedicated mother to this special baby, who turned into a young man, even though the odds were against him. God saw it was time to call this special young man “home”. All that are left behind feels so much hurt, but your day will come and you will see him again, and his arms will open wide like they always did for a hug. God’s special angel “TRAVIS”.

    Travis was a great person I knew growing up in school. It was always impressive to see how active Travis was. He lived as inspiration to anyone who may be limited physically, that you have the capacity to be and do so much more. It was a privilege to know you, Travis. You had a loving and caring family, friends, and a fan club that will never forget you.

  17. Deb Gunyon May 11, 2013 at 1:50 pm

    Travis never failed to bring a smile to my face. To the immediate and extended family, I’m so sorry for your loss. I am so glad I did see him recently, and yes another smile he gave to me. Cindy, you are a wonderful mother and person. Blessings to all of you.

  18. Ora & Cindy Reeder and family May 13, 2013 at 5:06 pm

    Cindy, Marshall and family: I know that Heaven is even brighter now that Travis has arrived. I worked with Travis for a long time at ASI and he was certainly a treasure to me and always will be. I know that he loved his family so very much. Now the angels can enjoy and love him as he was by so many here on earth.
