Travis Alexander

Recently, a dear friend of mine had his life taken by people/someone. I have been in deep reflection of my own life/mortality and my friend Travis. I would like to share a few memories of him and his influence in my life. Travis was in my singles ward here in Mesa AZ, he was my neighbor and my friend. I went over to his house often to hang, play with his dog and have many deep discussions on various subjects. Travis lived each day to be better for the next. He was a man of service, of great accomplishment and exuded a Christ like love to all those around him. I am truly a better person for knowing Travis Alexander. I am so grateful to have him as a friend! I am a big believer in Christ blessing us through other people being brought into our lives. He is just one example of that in my own; an incredible blessing he is too. Travis, I will never forget you, your legacy, your sweet services to me, kind words, counsel and advice. I hope to be like you someday.

Travis was a awesome motivational speaker and wonderful writer. You can read some excerpts from a book he recently finished at www.travisalexander.net

We are so sorry to hear that. What a sad circumstance. We are glad that you have so many good memories of him. I am always that we believe in life after death. It makes it a little easier to deal with. We are so sorry Johnna.

Although I don't think your friend deserved to die.

He was a fraud. A hypocrite.
