My brother-in-law would have been 40 years old this year.
Last Wednesday we celebrated what would have been Uncle Travis's Birthday.
The family gathered at Grandad & DeeDee's house.
We watched old home movies.
Looked through pictures.
Laughed and cried.
The kids get a kick out of seeing their dads retro apparel.
I made his favorite cake.
Yellow with chocolate frosting.
We miss you Uncle Travis.
I never knew you personally,
but I feel as though I do.
We all blew out the candles,
and made a wish.
My wish is to meet you for real someday.
We'll share stories and eat cake.
Happy 40th Birthday!
Travis Wayne Franklin
May 23, 1972 - July 5, 1989
