From Kevin Cole:
Today I attended the funeral of Travis Hooker. As I listened and watched, I was reminded of something I learned years ago, and I learned something new as well. Many years ago—before I was even a parent—I learned that the hardest thing in the world to do is to bury your child. Today I learned that the second hardest thing to do is to watch a mother bury her child. Our friend, brother and leader, David, and his father struggled with all that they had to console Travis’ mom.
When confronted with adversity or a tragedy like this, we search for something positive that might come from it. What I would like to offer my coworkers is a reminder that we are our brothers’ keepers. If someone you know needs help, give it to them or find it for them by raising the issue with someone you think might be able to help.
If you are struggling with something in your life and could use some help, remember that your brother is your keeper too. Your Ennis Electric family is here for you. Please ask for help. None of us would ever say no to someone brave enough to ask for help.
We all hurt with you today and want you to know we are here for you and your family.
May Travis C. Hooker Rest In Peace.
