Travis, rest assured in knowing that you were a great son, who provided for the needs of your Dad, when he needed you the most. Your Dad is in God's hands now, and there is no better place to be. May he rest in peace and may God give you a peace that passes all understanding. Love you Cousin, and we'll be right there when you need us!

Travis, Thank you for sharing your fathers latter years of life with Solange and I. We are grateful that we could be there to smile, laugh and create lasting memories to cherish. You, Kim and your family are in our hearts, mediations and thoughts in the hours, days, weeks, month and years to come. Continue to agape hard without regret, your father would be proud of you. He was rather SHARP in his first suit. We are here for you!

Daddy, My soul misses you and my heart still feels your love. You looked great in your first suit and yes I made sure that it was blue, yours, Kim’s and my favorite color. You were a peaceful man in life and you looked peaceful even after life. I enjoyed our times together as a child and as a young man we spoke the same language Daddy. Mama would always say that I was so much like you. I saw over the years that you were loved by so many and that just warms my heart. Just know that your son (Travis) loved his Daddy unconditionally with my whole heart. My prayer is that you always saw Exodus 20:12 in me. Now you can be with everyone in heaven and even see your Daddy Bennie once again whom you have not seen since you where a child. Loving You Always, Your Only Son
