I will always remember the good things and special times we shared. Working with Tracy was a joy. We used to go see Tracy Byrd at the Opry every year he did a show there. What a fun time we'd have doing that. Tracy loved Christmas, the color purple, and Winnie the Pooh, Tigger was a favorite. She had an infectious smile and funny giggle. Often we were the only two people working together on our halls, but we always managed to get things done. We would be so tired we could drop, but we usually made it through successfully, working, laughing, and making the best of our time. I have some gifts she gave me, all are simple, but thoughtful. One is a Hallmark ornament with the Peanuts characters ice skating to music, another is a snowman on skis, another is a pair of socks with skiers and snowflakes on them. She knew I love winter and skiing. I will treasure those always. Why things happen as they do in life we can't always understand. This is a difficult one. Rest peacefully in our Lord's arms my sweet friend. I love you.
