Dear Caleb and Logan,
It is with a heavy heart that I write you both to convey the sorrow I feel as I have learned of your Mothers passing. Although it’s been a good many years, I remember her vividly, her energy and enthusiasm. She clearly loved you both to no end and it is my firm belief that that same energy, her spirit, will be with you both and your loved ones till the end of time. Life often seems to be unpredictable and filled with random acts that make no sense and conversely there are daily acts of kindness, beauty and mystery that when you experience them, think of her, as I’m certain she’d want it that way. I wish you both peace and if for any reason you need or want to get hold of me, I hope you will. - Ian Bracchitta

To the family,
There are no words I can share that will fill the void that is there now. Each of us will have
Those precious memories no one will ever take away. Cling to those and trust the Lord and rely on friends to help you. Praying for each of you.

Caleb, Tj our son, played ball with you when you guys were probably 5 & 6 and we enjoyed some fun times with your family.. I have known your family for a long time even though I haven't seen them for years. Our prayers are with you today and forever as losing your Mom is something you never get over. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

Logan and Caleb,

Please trust that I am praying for you during these difficult days. You two have been Hagood student friends a long time and I recall how proud your mom was of your many accomplishments. She supported and loved you so much. As you grieve I pray that you will fill the tragic void with the joys and memories of your mother’s many gifts of love. There are really no adequate words and only God really understands your hearts. I will pray now and in the weeks ahead for comfort, peace and healing. Just take one day at a time and hold on to the Hands of Jesus.

I have a lot of childhood memories of her. I always enjoyed our big family reunions getting to see this side of the family and all the summer at the lake. She was a sweetheart and will be missed.

Though Vickie cut my hair, Tracey was always present with that infectious smile and laughter. She was always so upbeat, and could make your day brighter by saying hello. Caleb and Logan, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. May God give you the peace that only He can give, and may you feel His grace throughout the coming days.
