    Brother Travis,
    This picture is just how you are. Full of smiles and laughter. You are truly going to be missed. You were not only my pastor, but I considered you a friend. There will always be a void in our hearts since you are no longer with us. I know you were greeted in Heaven by several of your family and friends that you had often mentioned from the pulpit. I know one for sure was your Grandpa Dewey! Our loss is Heavens gain Travis. Marla, Linda, Nathan and family you are all in our thoughts and prayers during this time. Marla, you have a church family that loves and cares for you very much. We are all here for you, and want to help you in any way that we can. Love & Prayers, Shelley

    So sorry for your loss. I was able to know him through my brother. He was never at lost for words and he knew the word of God by heart.
    He shared God’s word everywhere he went.

    As we recount the many times we were blessed to sing songs about our heavenly home with you and your congregation at China Union, we now look forward to the day when we will join you in that place. Thank you for loving people and living for Jesus. You made your mark.

    Wonderful picture that smile always made me smile and warmed my heart, I’m smiling now. I cherish knowing you as my pastor and my friend. I never knew the true meaning of brothers & sisters in Christ until my 3 years @ China Union Church, I thank God for sending me there. You will be missed by all of our church family and by anyone’s life you touched. But God needed you and called you home, someday we will all be together again. Marla, I will keep you and all your family in my prayers for the days ahead.
    Love Linda
