My name is Sandi Latozke. Travis called me Aunti Sandi because his Dad was my brother Owen Chuck Thordarson. Chuck loved all three of his boys and Im proud to say they are some of my favorite nephews. Travis and Matt used to come to our trailer at Lake of the Woods Campground with us and our 4 kids(at the time, 5 now) and we sure had some fun trips, stopping for Bags of Burgers and finally getting to the campground to fish, play games, have campfires, ice cream cones and just laugh. No tv or cell phones, just a lot of fun and laughs. We miss you Travis. Love Aunti Sandi and Uncle Larry.

R.I.P Travis! You will be missed! It's ironic that you randomly messaged me on the 13th, unfortunately it was just a few short messages.
