    Our thoughts and prayers are with you. We reflect back on the time Travis joined his cousins at the Camp. What a great time he had exploring and swimming. The kids helped install a bench and initialed the concrete footers. May you find peace at this time in our Lord.

    I am so sorry to hear about Travis. It sounds like he was a funny and talented young man. I will be thinking of you and keeping you in my prayers. I did not know Travis at CSZ but I do have boys his age and I do know how much the CSZ “bug” can infect you and help you to reason with the real world at times. You are so kind to think of them. I hope you are able to find peace and comfort in the coming months and please know you have a big extended family of support out here.
