Dave, Dylan, Joshua and family, please accept my deepest condolences. Tracey touched the heart and souls of everyone she met. Her laugh was truly "contagious" and may fond memories bring you comfort and a smile in the days to come. The world has lost a very special and amazing lady and she will be missed. But we can take comfort in knowing she is now in God's loving hands.

So sad to hear this news.  I did not know until recently of her struggle with her illness. Tracy was a vivacious, exuberant force in this life.  I have many fond memories from our many years involved with South Middleton Baseball.  She was a proud and supportive Mother and a good friend to all who knew...past and present.  I always enjoyed being around her.  I pray for her family and friends who loved her. Rest in peace my friend.
