Hi All, You‘ve been constantly in our prayers. I wasn't blessed to know your wonderful husband, father, and grandfather personally. However, I see his generous heart in the way each of you cares for others, I see his faith in your belief that God is good, and I see his ever-present smile in your humor and the twinkle of your eyes when you find something funny. He is a great man who loves deeply and whose love will continue to be felt through each of you. May the Lord hold you tightly and grant you His peace as you eagerly await the day when you'll be reunited for all Eternity. Much love, Dave and Deb Sutton, Buford, GA

Dear Ones,
Our hearts are grieving with yours. Travis was the most gracious and kind-hearted man in our acquaintance. He holds a special place in our hearts and will always be remembered lovingly. Our journey together began as neighbors, but God had much more in mind when we met those 20-plus years ago. Our lives are richer, fuller, and more meaningful because you and Travis were a part of them. May the God of love fill you with His peace and comfort during this difficult time.
The Ciraky Family
