    So sorry to read about Travis’ passing. He was so young it is shocking to me. He worked for my husband (Ramon Stewart) for awhile on the farm. Know he will be missed here on earth. You will be in our thoughts and prayers, deepest sympathies. ( It’s of comfort to me to know he was a Christian and now in the presence of God. )
