So sorry to hear of Tracey's passing. Thank you Chris for letting us know. She was so vibrant, smart and had a great sense of humor.
We loved Tracey and I know Mitch did. She was the best that happened to him.
I lost contact with Tracey when the only cell number I had was disconnected and I could not reach her.
She will be missed by many.
Our sympathy to all: Justin and Maurine, Jennifer and Chris Harris, Matthew Watson, and Whit, Chris and Marian Matthews.
Sincerely, Scott, Patrick and Rich and Erich, Carley, EJ, and Christian, and Rita Scott.
