MURDER! PLAIN AND SIMPLE  / Joseph Browns (passerby)  Read >>
MURDER! PLAIN AND SIMPLE  / Joseph Browns (passerby)

how can you live not knowing what happened to your son? after reading everything it is OBVIOUS he was murdered! no way he could shoot himself without gun shot residue on him. With his hands on the barrel of the gun it sounds like he was pushing the gun away. his killer had to have access to the house either by dog door or she gave him a key. the wife made sure she had a albie but where was the boyfriend???

people kill people everyday and have arranged killings. she is involved for sure!!!

I live in colorado and i know money talks. this is a cover up! your son was MURDERED and it was arranged by a cheating wife!! she and her boyfriend need to burn in hell!!!

try to find a honest cop. DO SOMETHING! don't let this senseless murder go without bringing charges agaist the xwife and boyfriend! YOU ARE LETTING THEM OFF SCOTT FREE by doing nothing.

the kids will be raised in a corrupt invirerment and end up doing drugs and screwing everyone for what they want!

Dear Susan; I respect your opinions but I feel that these comments were hurtful to my grandchildren. None of this was their fault.

I am deleting your comment for that reason only. Please forgive me. I mean no disrespect to you or your opinions.

I pay you tribute  / Momma (Mom)

Today I added a new folder to our family pictures on Your folder is simply named "TRAVIS"!

I added pics of you when you were little until you were grown with children of your own. I don't have many pics of you after you got married your ex-wife has all your pictures and memories locked away in a storage unit in Colorado. Out of site out of mind I guess.

Too bad she will not share your memories of pictures and property with your children. Guess she wants you to be forgotten forever. But not by us!!

I hope you like my tribute to you and your memory my son.

I love you so much and miss you just as much! Life is not the same without you here. You left this world way too soon!

Killed before you could even defend yourself.

For others who would like to visit Travis on look for Cat McChristian (I am his Mom).

Your love and support  / Momma -. (Mom)

Thank you Travis for being by my side as we lost another family member and when I had my strokes and through hospital stay. I felt you and saw you. I love you son and I wish you and your children all the best.

I think you would be proud of your children. He is into music just like you and from what I have seen and read he is doing well. She is working at being a model and an actress.

I love you honey Stay close!

Love you always

Good Morning my son  / Cat McChristian (Mom)

Good Morning Travis. I love you so much and I wish that you were here. Ofcourse I always wish you were here.

I got a letter from Jody today he is in such bad shape. He is almost giving up I would like to ask you to please go to him and help him through this rough time. He is so young and it breaks my heart to know that he is so miserable. His own Mother has more or less given up on him. He doesn't know where to turn.

We all know that Jody has not had it easy lately but he needs support from all of us. He says that he misses you so much and often talks about that birthday party we threw for you with the huge hamburger. Remember that? It was a gas! We all had so much fun that day. I know that both Jody and Jeremy had so much fun that day.  I still look at the pictures of you and the other kids and remember your beautiful smile.

You had so much to give this world so much love and laughter. You have always had a heart of gold and so many people have told me that they will never forget you and your loving kindness.

Please Travis reach out to Jody in his time of need. We all love you so much.


A mountain to climb  / Cat McChristian (MOM)  Read >>
A mountain to climb  / Cat McChristian (MOM)

                        The Mountain I Must Climb

The path of life has taken me down many a winding road
And when at times I lost my way you'd help me share the load
You picked me up each time I fell and wiped away the pain
I never had to wonder if there'd be sunshine after rain

I believed in new tomorrows that would follow yesterday
That I'd always have that second chance for things to go my way
But today you took my child lord and surely you must see
The agony deep within my soul as you take him away from me

Don't you see how much I love him this surely cannot be true
For you have so many angels lord that live in heaven with you
he was my drink of water my heaven here on earth
And I held and rocked and loved him from the moment of his birth

This time you gave me a mountain lord I don't know if I can climb
For I truly thought I'd have him until the end of time
Will he be your special angel lord that you could not live without?
Your plan must have good reason of that I have no doubt

Take my heart sweet Jesus and hold it in your hands
I surrender my child as a gift to you if this is your command
For your father is my god almighty who also lost his child
That we'd be saved he gave us his lamb so meek and mild

I place him gently in your care as angels cry with me
Take care of my baby lord through all eternity

I love you always and forever!  Mom

Nick and John  / Cat -. -. (Mom)

Hi Travis I wanted to start this letter to you to tell you that a woman named Kathy emailed me today about her son John. She is having such a hard time. She writes she hates this time of year because this is the time of year when they brought him home from the hospital to pass.

She is grieving so much honey she needs our help and support. I sent her a long email and also gave her our phone number if she needs to talk. I told her she could call me ANYTIME day or night and her call will ALWAYS be welcome.

Meibe you can work your magic from the other side. Meibe you can find her son John and teach him how to leave "signs" like you do for us. She needs your help son I know you will help her in anyway you can. I LOVE YOU!

Also we brought Nick's ashes home today. We placed the urn under your picture and next to the big angel. We feel so bad about loosing Nick but there is comfort and closeur (sp)being able to have his ashes home. We know he is with us just as you are. Give Nick an big hug and kiss for us would you please?

Since your passing I have asked Gena repeatedly for your ashes. Especially during those four long years she had you put in a cardboard tube in a basement. But she always refuses our request. I am so sorry we can't bring you home honey. If only I could bring you home we would feel so much comfort by having you here. Meibe I need that closeure too. My heart breaks that I am not able to bring you home where you will be loved and cared for again. It tears my heart out knowing you are in a cubby hole in a strange place and we can't even come to leave you flowers or get close to you.

I love you Travis. Always!!


Candle lighting  / JoAnn Willis (patient of your Mom )  Read >>
Candle lighting  / JoAnn Willis (patient of your Mom )

Wow Cat! The candle lighting ceremony last night was beautiful. I was so happy to see all the people who came to give homage to your son.

When all the white balloons went up to heaven we all looked up. When that one balloon started to fall back down and it swirled around you all of our jaws fell to the ground.

Obviously Travis was there with us and he is the one who brought down that one balloon and make it flow around you. Amazing!!

There are only 14 of us in the group you conduct but there must have been 50 people last night.

Cat you have helped so many people and you have always been there for us. You are the only counsiler we have ever had that would answer our calls at 2am when we are in a crisis!

You say because of your son you were motovated to help and you sure are doing a great job. You have helped all of us so much and when you won the light of hope award we all cried tears of joy for you.

You are an awsome woman! You have done so much and you care about all of us and are willing to help us even in the middle of the night. Who else would care that much??

Thank you for the time you spend making snacks for the group. Thank you so much for caring for others. Thank you so much for just being the most wonderful counsiler we have ever had!

You truely are a friend and friend would like to have. You are always working to make our lives easier. We all love you we all need you and we all are so thankful for your help. You have saved some of us from committing suicide. You sit with us for hours at the hosptial and when we are admitted to the recovery unit you come each and every day to show us your support!!

Thank God for you and your precious son Travis!

Your Birthday  / Cat McChristain (Mom)  Read >>
Your Birthday  / Cat McChristain (Mom)

Son tomorrow will be your Birthday. I will make you a cake and give you my love just as I have done since the day you were born.

Thank you for your LOVE don't know what I would do without it. Also thank you for your "sign" last night. I knew I would hear from you!  We have always been so close no one will ever steal that from us. I am a part of you and you are a part of me.

You and I both love not only each other but the rest of the family too. I know if you had not died too soon you would have made such a great difference in so many lives.

Your children are fine, she gave them another father. His life is much different than what you would have taught but I guess you know that too.  

Just before your passing you were worried about your daughter and son.

They have a whole new set of values now. If only you could have hung on a little longer you could have taught them so much about LOVE loyality faithfulness and concern for the welfare of others who are less fortunate than them.

Thank you for the lessons you taught me Tina and Jon. You always made such an impact in OUR lives. So many beautiful memories so many beautiful things you have done to make other's happy. You always thought of others BEFORE YOUR OWN SELF AND YOUR OWN NEEDS that we will remember forever. I know you are watching through the holes in heaven. I know you are HERE thanks to your "signs". Too bad I can't share them.

LOVE is what you left behind. I will ALWAYS cherish YOU as MY precious SON and LOVE you more than you will ever know.

The world is such a different place now as you know. Values have changed there is so much hate and torment here on earth and I know that you are watching from heaven. Jesus taught LOVE and so do you.

Travis there will NEVER be anyone else like you. You are a blessing from heaven at least to ME. I just wish your life here had not ended so soon! Life without you will never be the same for ME.

 I carried you beneath my heart for nine months I felt your heartbeat. When  you were born I held you in my arms and LOVED you. I raised you to be the wonderful thoughtful man that you are. I held your hand when you needed support I kissed your tears away when others hurt you I raised you the best I possibly could. Then when you were 18 I allowed a Black Widow take your loving heart from those who really love you. I am so sorry she ever came into our lives!

Good or bad no matter what happens in the future we will ALWAYS be together in hearts and minds.

I was looking through your pictures today and remembering. Remember when we threw you a birthday party so big we had to have a hamburger the size of the grill and the bun had to be special ordered from Jacksonville to cover the huge burger? That was so much fun and the look on your face was something else. Jody was there that day and I just talked to him and he said he remembered it clearly. He sends you his love too!

Oh honey there is so much I want to share with you again. As usual I will bake your cake and we are going out to meet with you again tomorrow night. Will you send your message again tomorrow like you did today? Sure hope so.

Travis maybe you can still change lives. Please remove the hate from this world and get someone else to understand they are LOVED ALWAYS. My love is your love lets pass it on OK?

I have read when someone dies they take their love with them. I believe that to be true.

I will see you again soon. Can't wait to see you walk through those clouds with a big grin on your face and your arms outstretched for the welcome home hug.

Please take care of Nicky for us. Give him hugs and kisses for us. No one does it quite as good as YOU!! We are mourning Nick's passing just like we have mourned for you.  

MY SON MY LOVE MY WORLD MY HEART we will always have that "special" bond that NO ONE else could ever achieve.

Jon and Tina send their love. Sammy talks about you all the time as we do. Share in our love honey and pass it along as needed.

How I miss you!  / Your Momma (Mother)

Good Morning Travis. Today is sweethearts day. George is being extra sweet today. He left the house at 5:30am just to go to the store and buy me some flowers candy and a card. How sweet he is.

I am thinking of you as I always do. I know you would have made this day special for the Black Widow you called a wife. You have always been so thoughtful and kind. You are one in a million Travis and I will never let go. You mean the whole world to me Travis. I love you so very much. I miss you more than I can put in words. My heart aches for you. I miss your beautiful smile the way your eyes dance and the extra special way you treat those you love.

It has been hard to carry on without you here. No not just hard.... my heart breaks each and every day. I know that you are with Jesus now and there is not a better place to be. I guess I am just selfish... I can't let go.

Hope to see you again very soon.

Love Momma

Missing you  / Momma

Hi sweetheart just me again. Today I visited with a couple of girls who also left this world too soon. I can't come to see you so I visit with them and ask them to find you. The two girls are beautiful sisters and for some reason I hope and pray that they will find you and send you my love.

Travis it has been a long time (on earth) since you left but to me.... the pain of loosing you never leaves. I have read every book I can find about "after death" but can't find a way to communicate with you. I know you are in Heaven and I know you are happy there with Jesus but my heart still aches for you. I don't think the pain will ever go away until the day we will be together again. I hope and pray it will not be too long.

George and I are considering moving back to Nebraska where you use to live. Hopfully to be closer to you. Your sister is still miles away and it has been a long time since we have seen each other. So many miles! One day we will all be together again.

Time on earth seems so long. I bet it is beautiful there in Heaven and I am happy that you are with Jesus I just wish I was there with you.

Please watch over your children, they need you now more than ever. Also please let us know when you are here with us. I want to talk to you so bad!

Until we meet again I love you with all my heart!!

Love Mom

I love you!!  / Mom

Travis I love and miss you so much. It is hard for me to put into words but my heart aches without you.

I miss your smile you laugh your sense of humor and your loving ways.

I know that you are with Jesus now and for that I am thankful. No one will ever hurt you again. Thank you for sending us your private messages letting us know that you are still here with us. I know that you can hear me when I talk to you I just wish I could "hear" you when you talk to us.

Not long after your death I found a wonderful group of people who make guilts from your clothing. I sent in the shirts that I picked up from your bedroom and sent them in. I sleep with your quilt every night. I feel so close to you when I am covered with your quilt. On the night that I picked up your clothing little did I know that one day I could fold myself up with memories of you.

I never really wanted "memories" of you I never thought that you would be taken away to be with Jesus before me. I can hardly wait until the day when I can see you again and hold you close. You are so special to me Trav. I love you I keep a candle in the window for you every night and those candles will always burn for you until we meet again.

I miss you so much son please stay close and please watch over your children. They really need you now.

I love you!!!!

A reason, a season, a lifetime  / - - Momma (- - )  Read >>
A reason, a season, a lifetime  / - - Momma (- - )

People come into your life for a reason a season or a lifetime.
When you know which one it is you will know what to do for that person..

When someone is in your life for a REASON it is usually to meet a need you have expressed.
They have come to assist you through a difficulty to provide you with guidance and support to aid you physically emotionally or spiritually.
They may seem like a godsend and they are.
They are there for the reason you need them to be.
Then without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time this person will do or say something to bring the relationship to an end.
Sometimes they die. Sometimes they just walk away. 

What we must realize is that our need has been met our desire fulfilled their work is done.
The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.

Some people come into your life for a SEASON because your turn has come to share grow or learn.
They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh.
They may teach you something you have never done.
They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy.
Believe it it is real. But only for a season.

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation.
Your job is to accept the lesson love the person and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life.
It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant

Thank you friends and family for being a part of my life
whether you were here for a REASON a SEASON or a LIFETIME.

Travis is a part of my life for a REASON a SEASON and a LIFETIME. I will always love him he is my child and my best friend. I will always carry him in my heart and in my thoughts. He will always be a part of my soul. Although for just a short time God allowed me to be his Mom and I am so very thankful.

I speak of Travis in the present because to me Travis is NOT dead.

Travis will live on forever because of the love and joy he gave to others. His smile lit the way his giving nature helped people who were down and out his love brought forth two beautiful children.  His handi work has been left behind in the beautiful homes of others.

I can not live without my son Travis my son Jon and my daughter Tina. Travis is beside me each and every day. Jon and Tina are only a phone call away.


All my love always

Pink Flowers for love  / Mom

We have watched a lot of John Edward since your death, he says pink flowers are a sign of love.

We went to your grave site for the first time this past weekend and we brought you a huge spray of pink roses.

Travis, we love you so much and your passing has left a huge void in the hearts of all of us.

I wish our visit to Arizona was to visit you in person instead of a visit to your grave!

Until we meet again, we carry your memory in our hearts and minds. Watch over your children and keep them safe. They love and miss' you as much as I do.

I love you sweetheart!!

Love, Mom

When tomorrow starts without me  / Momma   Read >>
When tomorrow starts without me  / Momma

When Tomorrow Starts Without Me

When tomorrow starts without me, and I'm not there to see;
When the sun will rise and find your eyes, all filled with tears for me;
I wish so much you wouldn't cry, the way you did today,
while thinking of the many things, we didn't get to say.
I know how much you love me, as much as I love you,
and each time that you think of me, I know you'll miss me too;
But when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand,
that an angel came and called my name, and took me by the hand,
and said my place was ready, in heaven far above,
and that I'd have to leave behind, all those I dearly love.
But as I turned to walk away, a tear fell from my eye,
for all life, I'd always thought, I didn't want to die.
I had so much to live for, so much yet to do,
it seemed almost impossible, that I was leaving you.
I thought of all the yesterdays, the good ones and the bad,
I thought of all the love we shared, and all the fun we had.
If I could relive yesterday, just even for awhile,
I'd say goodbye and kiss you and maybe see you smile.
But then I fully realized, that this could never be,
for emptiness and memories, would take the place of me.
And when I thought of worldly things, I might miss come tomorrow,
I thought of you, and when I did, my heart was filled with sorrow.
But when I walked through heaven's gates, I felt so much at home.
When God looked down and smiled at me, from His great golden throne,
He said, "This is eternity, and all I've promised you".
Today for life on earth is past, but here it starts anew.
I promise no tomorrow, but today will always last,
and since each day's the same day, there's no longing for the past.
But you have been so faithful, so trusting and so true.
Though there were times you did some things, you knew you shouldn't do.
But you have been forgiven and now at last you're free.
So won't you take my hand and share my life with me?
So when tomorrow starts without me, don't think we're far apart,
for every time you think of me, I'm right here, in your heart.

My Love for you  / Mom (Grieving Mom )

Travis, I send you my love today and always. I remember how beautiful you had decorated your house inside and out for your son during the Christmas holiday. It was still lit up the night we came to your home after you died. At the same time, your heart was broken because you were not allowed to have your children home. I know how much pain you were in, your children are your whole world. I am so sorry for the pain you had to go through. It was uncalled for and you should never have been treated that way. Your love and devotion meant nothing to her.

Travis, I know where your heart is and I hope you wrap your angel wings around your children. Protect your precious children, watch over them and try to keep them safe from words and actions that will hurt them. I think of your kids every day. I remember making bread and cookies with you and your son. Those days will always be remembered. I love you so much Travis, I wish I could have protected you from the one who said she "loved" you forever and ever Amen. Actions always speak louder than words, I guess you know that now. There was a time when you were with Kelly, life seemed so complete and happy. I wish I could bring those days back to you again. I miss you so much and I think about your kids every day. They deserve a better life with a Dad who loves them unconditionally. I still keep the faith that someday, maybe they will contact us and want the truth about your passing.

I had a memory quilt made from some of your shirts and I use it every night to try and surround myself with your love and presence. Thank you Travis for all the joy you brought to our lives. Life will never be the same for those of us who truely love you and have been left behind. Life use to be so "normal", life will never be normal again for those of us that love you. I hope you see the love we have for you every day!

All my love now and always,
