Our Dear Tracy

It is with great sadness that I write today.  My Mom and I are in Texas to celebrate the life of my cousin, Tracy, and to say good-bye to her many years too soon.
A special thanks to one of Tracy's friends, who posted this beautiful pic of her on FB so I could share it with you here.

So many people have posted comments on her facebook page about the light that Tracy brought to them.  So many tributes are written on the impact that she had on people.  Reading them has been a beautiful and hard thing to do, and I am glad that these stories are there for her family to read later, when they are ready.

Tracy believed in leaving the world a better place than she found it.  Everything she did and said, how she raised her children, and the way she lived her life exemplified faith, family and love.  As I have read all the posts, one thing has become very clear to me:  for each of us that was lucky enough to know and love Tracy, our worlds are better because of her.

Thank you, Tracy, for the love, beauty and light you brought to all of us.  May you rest in peace.

I love you, Cousin.
