Christmas 2006 - Travis’s first Christmas in Heaven

We will always hold Travis near to our hearts and try to remember him and the moments God gave us to share together - I read recently “Life is a marvelous, wondrous gift from God. We did nothing at all to deserve life, nor to enjoy the gift of someone else’s life.”

So we tried to find a way to celebrate the gift of his life with family members at Christmas time this year - a little gift to remind them that he will always be a part of our family, even though he lives a long way away right now . . .

Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together.

Play, smile, think of me . . .

Let my name be ever the household word that is always was.

Copying his signature from his 2003 Tax Return, we cleaned it up, printed it on some pretty paper and burned the edges and glued it to the front of the little frame - and have it sitting next to a Willow Tree little boy figurine - "Heart of Gold" on our mantle, and some family members and friends do as well.
