I’m starting to raise money to have a Torah written in Memory of my brother, Travis Darling.
Travis was 16 months younger than me. We grew up together and were the best of childhood friends. We didn’t have the easiest childhood, but we are always there for each other. As we grew older, we sadly grew apart. Travis went on to be a cowboy in the rodeo, and I went the Jewish path and served in the Israel Army.
We were slated to travel to Israel this December on Mayanot Birthright-Israel. This was going to be the trip of a lifetime. Both Travis and I were beyond excited to take an extended trip together; more importantly, I could show my brother why I love Israel and Judaism. Unfortunately we were not able to go on this trip.
On 12, Heshvan 5773, October 28th, 2012. Travis had just moved to Texas for a job training horses. That night he was on his way home and wrecked his truck and died on impact.
To honor his name and soul, I am trying to raise money to write a Torah Scroll. This will be for the students at the University of Colorado in Boulder, where I attend college.
Thank you for your time and money.
