  1. Michelle Hammonds says:

    Tracy and I became good childhood friends, as her mom and my mom were close, and her sister Pam was our babysitter. Lots of laughter around my house, and hers, spent time at a cabin once, went to a lake- we played barbies… first time I ever saw a stick bug – she held it for me! Rest peacefully in heaven, say hello to your mom for us. Until we meet again. Love Michelle Hammonds

    Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal. Tracy, go rest high upon that mountain your work on earth is done. GOD be with your family and grant them peace and solace during this time of grief.
