HAPPY BIRTHDAY TRAVIS, MY SON


I just wanted to tell you about someone very special to my heart. He is up in Heaven now with Jesus, but he is still remembered all the time, but especially today it would have been his birthday of 43 years. I think back on the day he was born, I have such great memories of that little man as he grew up to be a big man. He was over 6 feet and weighed over 300 lbs. He had a beard that was so becoming to him. He played football in little league, but never played in High School, which he regretted so much. He had a beautiful family that he would be so proud of them now and how they have managed since his death. I’m so grateful to God that He let me have my son for the 30 years for the time he was here on earth but most of all I’m so glad that God choose me to be his mother. He was a fine young man. His co-workers called him the gentle giant.  I wish him a very Happy Birthday in Heaven and I hope all the angels are singing to him.


Love Mom

Oh I am so sorry - I know that has to be a hard loss. I lost my brother at 51 and that was hard enough. Age 30 - way to early.

I'll say an extra prayer for you today.

DEAR PAT,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO TRAVIS AND I KNOW THE ANGELS DID SING TO HIM. I KNOW YOU MUST BE IN TERRIBLE PAIN BUT GOD IS THE ANCHOR THAT HOLDS YOU STEADY WHILE THE STORM RAGES AGAINST YOU.
TRAVIS WAS AND IS A HANDSOME MAN THAT IS WAITING FOR YOU IN THE FUTURE. THAT IS GOD'S PROMISE!!!!
EVEN WITH OUR PRECIOUS LORD THE DEATH OF A CHILD IS THE HARDEST THING, I BELIEVE, THAT ANY MOTHER CAN GO THROUGH.
MY PRAYER AND TEARS ARE WITH YOU.
HUGS
