I miss you already, Uncle Tracy, give Aunt Peg and Russ a hug for me and let them know we will be together again laughing and joking with each other. I know Pawpaw Mills and Grandmother are glad to see you too. I am praying for Doug, Barbra and family. They are really feeling alone right now. I love you and will be seeing all of you someday on "the other side of heaven"!

I did not know Pop had passed away until today or I would have come to the visitation etc. I am deeply saddened to hear of his passing although I know he is happy to see Peggy and Rusty (and my dad and more) ~ and no longer suffering. I love Pop, Peggy and Rusty so very much. With them I took my first steps along with Helen and Don. I stayed there daily when young (and even ran away there many times as a child). They raised me as one of their own and I grew up thinking that Rusty was just another one of my brothers. If there is anything at all that I can do for you or your family, Doug, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Romans 14:8 "For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord's."

Doug and family,

I am praying for you all during this very difficult time. I know Pops is celebrating in heaven with Peggy and Rusty. Pops was always so very sweet to me and I always loved getting his big hugs. Hold close to your heart the memories you have as they will get you through in the days, weeks, months and years to come. Much love to you all!

I was lucky enough to have worked with tracy at A&P bakery in the early years of 1960. He was well liked and a good friend in our work place. God Bless
