Living Without you Chicken Butt, Butt Cheeks

By Grace Emily Schara

April 23, 2020

I am blue without you Travis, AKA Chicken Butt, Butt Cheeks. I love you! My stomach hurts for you so much. I never imagined life without you. I still dream about you every night.

Everything I do is so difficult without you Travis. This reminds me of a joke. Why was the dog depressed? Answer: Because his life was RUFF. That is how I feel about you losing you Travis. It is rough. Things aren’t and won’t ever be the same. We miss you so much when we go out to eat. There is always an empty chair at our table of 8. We think of you like when we’d go out to eat for Chinese food, (actually order in), Olive Garden, Red Lobster, and Domino’s pizza.

I miss seeing you feed your turtle, Sif. It was so hilarious when you’d help her catch her feeder fish. I miss seeing you pet your cat, Toni, play fetch with her and calling her Punk. I can still hear you say "Bring it back here Punk".

I really, really miss seeing your smiley face and FaceTiming with you. It‘s difficult to FaceTime with others because I thik of you and how I’d call you and ask you what your favorite color was for an old math assignment I had on graphs.

Even though it is hard to go on without you, I believe I will see you again someday in heaven. BUT, until then, life without you is gonna be hard cause I love and miss you SO MUCH my big, handsome brother, Travis, Elvis, Chicken Butt, Butt Cheeks, Presley Schara, Scara, looks like Elvis Presley in the US Army in Germany, and looks like Jesus Christ. And… I will be your little sister, Grace Emily Chicken Wing, Priscilla Presley Schara. (Caleb is still Tator Tot and Riley is Small Fry. They miss you too!

I’ll have blue, blue sad days without you, but until I see you again, remember I love you, Chicken Butt!
