Happy Birthday Uncle Travis!

Today my oldest brother would have turned 35 years old! He was just 10 years old when he wrecked his 4-wheeler and went to be with his Heavenly Father. I was only 5 years old when he passed away, but I can remember his sweet, laid-back, honest disposition. He was creative and smart, and had no enemies. Although he died at such a young age, we know that this was God's Will. Jeremiah 29:11..."For I know the plans I have for you..."

We are anxious to be with him in heaven again someday! My life is different because of him. My life is better because of him. I live my life to the fullest every day. I do NOT take for granted that I will always be on this earth. I do NOT take for granted that my kids or my family will always be on this earth. I love and appreciate my husband and kids in a way that I may have never known had this tragedy never happened. I can't wait for my kids to meet their Uncle Travis in heaven and see what an amazing person he is!

In Loving Memory...

Thank you for writing this, Kacy. Even though, you've shared most of this with me before, reading it tonight touched me deeply. Love you and thank God for you, my friend.
