  1. As it has been said “life is not measured by its length, but it’s depth” Traci was a friend to many and lived her life as an inspiration to her family and friends. We’re in shock of how sudden she was taken from us but will be comforted by the many memories of the gentle teasing and many lunches we shared through the years. We love all of you very much. Rich and Charlie

  6. Soo sorry for this unexpected loss. I love the comments from Rich and Charlie, yes, being taken early in life is terrible, but what you do with the time here is more important. Diane and my own prayers go out to Traci’s friends and family. Been looking at all the great pictures of George, Traci and family on FB. Condolences from Chuck and Diane Mather – Boise ID

  8. I don’t remember a moment that I spent near Traci that she wasn’t smiling, giving out goodness, and making the world a better place. She passed those qualities on to her girls, the grandkids, and all of the rest of us. I know that her strength will carry this family forward. Love you all.

  9. We were all shocked and saddened to hear the news about Traci. She was a special lady. She had way of making everyone around her feel comfortable and accepted. We’ll keep you in our prayers. Hang in there!
