    I am going to miss getting a pizza Renting a movie.
    And not even watching the movie just sitting back. Talking for hours with the TV off. You will always be the best conversation I ever had. You will sincerely be missed.

    I’m so sorry for the loss of your dear loved one. May you find comfort and hope in God’s wonderful promise to wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning, nor outcry, nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. -Revelation 21:4 Condolences

    We will miss Travis dearly, especially on holidays and birthdays. We enjoyed his laughter, smiles, and long conversations. We fondly recall how we’d end a meal or visit, say goodbye, and then 2 hours later we were still chatting away. Good memories, he will be sorely missed by all lucky enough to have known him.

Big John has been exploring the heavens for decades….now Travis has gone ahead to scout the way for the rest of us. I will miss his smile and laugh …my nephew,Travis Benton

    It’s been such a long time. We spent so many nights hanging out down there at the Circle, or in your garage, back in the late 80’s and early 90’s. You were the center of our group. I’ll always remember those days, and I’ll remember you. Farewell, my friend.
