My thoughts and prayers to the entire Travis Family. I was lucky enough to work as the director of Swansea Recreation summer Program which Samantha and Peter attended many years back, and the Whole Travis Family was so kind and welcoming to me as a newcomer. I know you are a close family and will stick by each other’s side at this difficult time. Again, thoughts and prayers to you all!

Ann and I worked at two hospitals many year ago. She was a wonderful,caring and funny person,a joy to be around always. She crossed paths with me in through out the years, and we always shared many stories of thoughs earlier years.
I have not doubt that now, she is in heaven telling stories and making people laugh. May she rest in peace.

My sincere condolences to all of Ann’s family. Ann was one of the smartest, funniest and supportive managers (and friend) I’ve ever had. Ten memorable years I worked for Ann at Newport Hospital. I would imagine she’s reunited with your father, her soulmate. Rest In Peace Ann, you’re one of the best ever! Vicki

Ah, I'd know that Clancy smile anywhere! I do hope you recognize me, too, when I get up to see you again!!
Thank you, Aunt Ann, for always bringing a smile to my face! Even when I saw her last fall with Aunt Jean, she had me in tears with laughter - especially when she scolded Jean about taking me shopping at the Kerr Mill that day - yes, it was closed!!
Luv and hugs to all the family and blessings for peace that she is resting comfortably now (unless of course she is still working!!),
