    To the family of Travis Moody:
    I feel a loss of Travis, my brother in The Lord. Of course, I miss all of you since I don’t see you at worship services any more. Travis was such a gentleman. I always knew where he would be after services. We spoke when we saw each other. My prayers have been for you all since I read in the newspaper.

    As Christians we look forward to going home since this world is not our home. We will be whole again without the aches, pains and sorrows. Travis is released from all earthly concerns. I know he loved you.
    Until we meat again, God be with you in your sorrow. In Christian love, Don.
