Travis James Wilson passed away August 5, 2015. He was in a car with people he thought were friends, they drove around for almost 2 hours before they got him help. Fast forward to May 2017..... 5 years in prison to dealer, 18 months in prison to buyer, driver got slap on the wrist because he squealed on dealer. All will be on probation for 3 years. An eye of an eye would be a better sentence. But we, Travis' family and friends will always love and miss him, I pray I will see him again in HeavenMedina, Ohio USA

To my beautiful and talented son, Brian Pollard...Mother's Day 2016 you left this physical world. Your battle with heroin took you away, just past your 32nd birthday. I miss you so much, as do your sweet daughters, your brothers and family. When your brother Sean got married a couple of weeks ago, he scattered some of your ashes in the Frio River. Hours before the wedding I found 6 hawk feathers, so I know you were there with us. We used them in the flower arrangements on all the tables. I love and miss you so very much...it's amazing what the heart can endure. Rest in peace, my son, and know how much you will always be loved 💖Meadview, Grand Canyon, USA
