    “T” was like a REAL brother to me.
    I even named my only son after him.
    I will miss him and May GOD give the peace to his family and friends that he can ONLY give.
    May you rest in peace.

    Travis was wonderful to work with. He never lost his temper and loved to keep everyone laughing and smiling. I loved to pick on him and tease him and he really enjoyed it.
    He will be missed.

    I have known Travis and had the pleasure of having a dear friend in Mrs Ruby since the 1970’s
    My deepest sympathy goes out to family and friends.
    May GOD comfort you only as he can.

    Dear Dean, Janice, and the entire Franks family. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Thank you for sharing your brother with me. There won’t ever be another like Travis, that’s for sure! Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal. May you rest in peace Mr. Breeze!
