The Nix Family, I am so terribly sorry for the loss your family is going through. I pray the Lord gives you strength and comfort during this time. I hope your pain is replaced quickly with the reassurance that Travis is okay now. He's probably trying to find a way to tell you now that it's okay, that he'll see you again, it's not over and that he loves you. Draw upon the Lord today and tomorrow. Your Travis will be missed by so many. Love and Pray to All, The Black & McDaniel Family

I don't have any words that will lessen your grief. Only time will give you a little relief to the pain you must be going through. Trav was so full of personality and life. Ian has been telling story after story that I didn't even know! What's new right?
We'll miss him.
Keep him tight in your heart and I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

Travis is someone we all love and miss deeply. He was an amazing and high spirited child with a heart melting smile that could turn the darkest of days to light. The first time he played with our son, I had never seen him take someone so easily. No doubt he is watching over everyone, especially his beloved family. Our deepest condolences to the family.

Tomorrow will be two years and I still can't seem to wrap my head around the fact that we'll never see him again. He was the most caring person I have ever met in my life and it was such a privilage him being in my life for as long as he was. All of my thoughts and love goes to anyone who needs it at times like these.
