On Tuesday May 16, 2023, God sent his angels and picked flowers from all over the world. When they reached Stockbridge, Georgia, there was a flower that God wanted them to pick. They went to Piedmont Henry Hospital and picked the flower known as Travis Lee Ford. Travis simply closed his eyes and went to his heavenly resting place.
