    Tracy loved her children with everything she had. I’m glad she was my friend for over 20 years. I will do anything for her daughters in her honor as long as I am able. I know she’s watching over them in a peaceful place.

    I feel completely cheated out of my chance at having my life long friend. I didn’t know Tracy long at all but her passing has impacted me so deeply. That’s when you know that someone was an amazing person. I admire her leo personality traits the most because they were much like my own. She loved so hard and so sincerely. I will never forget you my friend… never.

    Tracy it has taken me a minute to write something, I loved you the moment mom gave birth to you. I cant breathe without you. I know I will carry all the stories in my head and heart but it’s not enough. I will miss and love you forever and ever. Love you sammy .

    Tracy, I will miss you everyday and regret that I was not there to protect you. I know how hard life has been, no one should ever have to bare the weight we had to. I just wished I could have protected you from the evils of life. Your safe now and I will think about you everyday and always.
    Your Brother

    Beyond the average sis-n-law relationship. I was given the beautiful gift of experiencing the one on one compassion, empathetic care (difficultsurgery), and amazing late night deep vulnerable conversations with Tracy when she visited us for a month (20yrs ago). She led & loved with an open heart and had amazing insight. An absolute beautiful human inside & out, I know her energy will surround her 4 beautiful daughters as they go forward on this difficult journey. I am grateful for the time we shared.
